Jacobs University Bremen researchers produce succinic acid better by including CO2

October 18, 2022 |

In Germany, for enhancing flavors, the production of dyes, pharmaceutical products and bio polyesters—succinic acid is a versatile platform chemical. A team led by researchers at Jacobs University Bremen has developed an economically and ecologically attractive process for the production of succinic acid by more effectively incorporating carbon dioxide (CO2).

Researchers are currently exploring alternatives made from renewable carbon sources and plant waste streams. This also applies to the production of succinic acid. It has been obtained from petroleum, but also by fermentation from starch and sugar.

The researchers use glycerol and CO2 as an alternative carbon source.
