Metabolix in green C4 partnership

Metabolix announced yesterday that it will form a joint development deal for its polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA)-based C4 chemicals -- initially butanediol (BDO), tetrahydrofuran (THF), gamma butyrolactone (GBL) and polyester engineering resins (PBT) -- with Korea-based industrial biotechnology company CJ CheilJedang.

The blog posted in March about Metabolix's development in this area where the company said it was aiming to deliver product samples of its biobased C4s to potential customers before the end of the first quarter this year.
