Projectbeschrijving

In June 2010, Royal DSM N.V., the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company headquartered in the Netherlands, and Roquette Frères, the global starch and starch-derivatives company headquartered in France, announced the signing of a joint venture (JV) agreement, named Reverdia, for the production, commercialization and market development of Biosuccinium™, sustainable succinic acid.

Biosuccinium™ is the first non-fossil feedstock derived chemical building block that allows customers in the chemical industry to choose a bio-based alternative with a lower eco-footprint for a broad range of applications, from packaging to footwear.

Since early 2008, we have been working to develop the best and most sustainable fermentative technology to produce bio-based succinic acid with testing volumes of Biosuccinium™ produced in a demonstration plant in Lestrem (France) built in 2008.

Reverdia, backed by industry leaders DSM + Roquette, provides bio-based products worldwide

In May 2011 Reverdia announced the construction of a commercial-scale plant for the production of Biosuccinium

In December 2012 Reverdia has begun operations in Cassano Spinola, Italy, as planned, which has a capacity of about 10,000 tonnes/yr, is unique in its kind, being the world’s first dedicated large-scale plant for the production of succinic acid from renewable resources. It is also the only commercial facility to benefit from experience gained using low-pH yeast technology on a demonstration plant scale; Reverdia regards this as essential to be able to promise further improvements in product quality.
