Evonik and BioAmber to develop catalysts
Published August 15, 2012
BioAmber is a leading manufacturer of bio-succinic acid from renewable feedstock. Bio-succinic acid is a platform chemical that can be used to make a number of products currently made from petrochemicals. The company licensed BDO hydrogenation catalyst technology from DuPont in 2010, which has been further developed with partners Evonik and the Center for Applied Catalysis at Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey to improve the technology. In parallel, BioAmber and Evonik have started to develop a new generation of BDO catalysts.
