Weekly News Roundup

Big ticker news are from LS9 and BASF but I'll separate the BASF news in another post. Still on the line-up are my interviews with Carbon Sciences, Seventh Generation and probably something from my interview with Procter & Gamble Chemicals. Stay tune!

Here are this week's news roundup:

LS9's 2nd project with P&G
LS9 started a second development and commercialization partnership with Procter & Gamble (P&G). No details were reported but the companies said the second project expands on the companies' first project in using LS9's renewable chemicals portfolio to P&G consumer products.

Chempolis Ltd and Henan Yinge Industrial Investment Co., Ltd will form a joint venture in Luohe, Henan province, which will build a biorefinery based on Chempolis formicofib™ technology using wheat straw as raw material. The biorefinery will produce annually 160 000 tons of non-wood papermaking fibres and biochemicals.
