Bio-succinic invades Asia

Got this news from DNP Green Technology this morning about new activities from their bio-succinic joint venture Bioamber.

Bioamber's bio-based succinic acid products are already being spread out in Asia with the help of DNP's acquisition of Sinoven Biopolymers last February. Sinoven will manufacture modified polybutylene succinate (mPBS) in China using Bioamber's bio-succinic acid.

DNP said they are looking to partner their mPBS technology with a leading producer of PBS in order to build a large scale modification plant in proximity to a PBS plant.

This morning, Bioamber announced that it has chosen Japanese chemical trading firm Mitsui & Co. to further distribute their bio-succinic acid throughout Asia.
