In the Netherlands, Teijin Aramid and Avantium announced today that they have entered into an R&D partnership to explore high-performance polymers. The partnership builds on Teijin Aramid’s world leading position of polyaramids and Avantium’s catalytic technology for producing building blocks for green materials and fuels.
Avantium is a research and technology company that is unlocking a new generation of biobased chemical building blocks, under the brand name YXY. The companies will produce a range of polymer products containing Avantium’s YXY building blocks. Subsequently, Teijin Aramid plans to test these products for different applications. Teijin Aramid and Avantium have entered into a multi-year collaboration agreement with milestones for monitoring the progress towards commercialization of these new polymers. The partners have successfully secured a government grant to support part of the work under the agreement. Gert Frederiks, CEO & President of Teijin Aramid noted, “In Avantium we have found a partner that is excelling in the field of advanced high-throughput R&D and offers a line of biobased chemical building blocks for green polymers.”
