BioAmber Inc. Succinic Acid (Bio-SA™) represented by IMCD at the Plant Based Summit in Paris

IMCD leverages BioAmber Inc. partnership at the Plant Based Summit, for the distribution of bio-succinic acid in synthesis, resins & coatings in Europe

November 23, 2013
The Plant Based Summit that took place in Paris on November 19th-21st is a European conference and exhibition dedicated to bio-based solutions with over 100 international speakers from industry, Finance, the European Commission, and local authorities.

Booth at Plant Based SummitIMCD, a leading global distributor of specialty products, partnered with BioAmber Inc. for the distribution of bio-succinic acid in synthesis, resins & coatings in almost all western & central Europe, used this forum to promote BioAmber Inc. and their other partners for "green" solutions in a broad range of markets, including synthesis, coatings, food, and personal care.

IMCD is one of the few distributors able to propose a consistent bio based portfolio. It’s a strong driver within IMCD’s strategy to grow their bio based product range and propose more and more renewable alternatives to petro based products. Around BioAmber Inc. succinic acid, they have 7 synergistic suppliers for the resins & coating business (CVC, Akros, Dupont Tate & Lyle, Byk, Arizona Chemical and Geo).

The exhibition was a success for IMCD in term of contacts and image; an excellent opportunity to differentiate themselves, and BioAmber Inc., on the basis of bio, as compared to other distributors.
