Amyris partners with Wilmar in surfactants
This is an interesting development on the green surfactants sector with the news that Amyris is partnering with Singapore-based palm products (and oleochemicals) producer Wilmar.
According to Amyris, it will establish a development, production and commercialization venture with Wilmar which will use Amyris' Biofene molecule in surfactant manufacture. Surfactants are used in a variety of consumer and industrial applications - the largest of which are in detergent products.
