GELEEN, The Netherlands - In addition to its production capacity of about 10,000 tonnes per year out of the Cassano, Italy, Biosuccinium™ plant, Reverdia announced at the European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology (EFIB) that it is now licensing Biosuccinium. The move will help companies that want to integrate bio-succinic acid production into their business offering.

Making the announcement, Marcel Lubben, President of Reverdia, said, “By licensing the Biosuccinium technology as well as selling product direct, we are ensuring that more customers can benefit from Reverdia’s experience in technology and application development. The licensing offering is essential to unlock the biobased market and is the next logical step in our evolution.”

Biosuccinium is a building block for the production of polymers and chemicals, including bioplastic polybutylene succinate, resins for paints and coatings, phthalate-free plasticizers and polyester polyols for polyurethanes. Reverdia’s low pH yeast fermentation process has best-in-class carbon performance as demonstrated by the published cradle-to-gate LCA by the University of Utrecht.
