BioAmber, LANXESS in bioplasticizers

So many news that came out while I am away (Solazyme, Amyris, Cobalt Technologies, Chemtex...). Thank goodness for free wifi in Vienna airport so I have 15 minutes to write this post about BioAmber and Lanxess working on biosuccinic-based plasticizers.

By the way, just wanted to let my readers know that I already suspected some sort of partnership will happen between the two companies when BioAmber announced that it is building a 17,000 tonne/year bio-succinic acid plant in Sarnia, Canada, given that Lanxess' bio-based chemicals manufacturing (e.g. bio-isobutene for tires from the Gevo partnership) seems to center in Sarnia.
