Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • The extent of market penetration depends mainly on the price competitiveness of biobased succinic acid relative to the petrochemical alternatives.
  • BASF and Purac, a subsidiary of CSM NV, will form a joint venture to produce bio-based succinic acid.
  • The companies have been conducting research under a joint development agreement on bio-based succinic acid since 2009.
  • The newly developed process combines high efficiency with the use of renewable substrates and the fixation of the greenhouse gas CO2 during the production. This results in a positive carbon-footprint and makes bio-based succinic acid an economically and ecologically attractive alternative to petrochemical substitutes.
  • Because of the rising price, the limited reserves of petroleum and the pollution of environment, the oil-based industries had been prompted a movement towards the bio-based chemicals, and the bio-based succinic acid production had drawn the attention from enterprises and research institutes.
  • The companies investing in biosuccinic acid clearly believe these projections are reasonable, given that, collectively, three of them intend to bring over 140,000 tonnes of capacity online by 2012.
  • They base their optimism on potential new markets for biosuccinic acid, which dwarf the current use of the ingredient.
  • DNP Green is betting that its investment in producing biosuccinic acid will transform the ingredient from a specialty to a commodity chemical. It has set up a joint venture called Bioamber with agricultural research and development company ARD that has just commissioned a 21 million (18 million) facility in Pomacle, France, with an annual capacity of 2,000 tonnes.
  • Their process uses an Escherichia coli (E. coli) strain developed specifically to produce succinic acid, with wheat-derived glucose currently being used as the substrate.
