BASF, Purac aim for bio-based succinic acid JV

August 10, 2011 |

In Germany, BASF and Purac have started negotiations to form a joint venture for the production of bio-based succinic acid.  The two companies have been conducting research since 2009, which has lead to a sustainable and efficient manufacturing process based on a proprietary microorganism.

The two companies are looking to have a 25,000 ton fermentation plant at Purac’s site near Barcelona, Spain, by 2013.  The companies are also looking to build a plant with a 50,000 ton capacity in expectation of increasing demand for succinic acid.
