BioAmber operates the world’s largest succinic acid plant in Sarnia, Canada. The facility has a nameplate capacity of 30,000 tons per year and was built at a cost of $141 million. Construction was completed in 2015. BioAmber owns the plant with Mitsui & Co, a 30% owner of the joint venture that operates the Sarnia plant.
Beyond Sarnia, BioAmber is planning to build a second world-scale plant in North America that will produce 1,4-butanediol (BDO), tetrahydrofuran (THF) and succinic acid. The nameplate capacity is expected to be 100,000 tons of BDO/THF and 70,000 tons of succinic acid per year. BioAmber has signed take-or pay contracts for approximately 80% of the nameplate capacity of this second plant, which is expected to complete construction in late 2018.
BioAmber is proud that its Integrated Management Systems in Sarnia were ISO 9001:2008 registered, ISO 14001:2004 registered, BS OHSAS 18001:2007 registered, and FSSC 22000 registered within four months of operational start-up.
BioAmber’s leadership position has been built with several strategic partnerships, joint ventures and collaborations.
