Built on time and on budget, this industrial scale plant has an initial annual capacity of 2,000 metric tons. BioAmber Inc.’s renewable succinic acid offers higher purity than petroleum derived succinic acid, with the added benefit of consuming CO2 gas in the production process, giving it a distinct advantage over the traditional petrochemical route.
BioAmber Inc. will begin selling bio-based succinic acid immediately to a variety of customers and will build market demand as it negotiates the sale of licenses for large scale succinic acid plants.
“Since 2007, we have sampled over 50 companies in a number of applications including plastics, polyurethanes, polyesters, plasticizers, solvents and de-icers,” said Patrick Piot, General Manager of BioAmber Inc. “This production plant is a major milestone in our development. Renewable succinic acid is no longer an R&D program; it is a commercial reality for the chemical industry.”
