Reverdia will be the first company in the world to conduct large-scale commercial production of bio-based succinic acid

Drying equipment

Reverdia, a joint venture between the Royal DSM and Roquette Frères, has received approval from all regulatory agencies and is officially operational. Through its patented production technology, Reverdia can meet the growing demand for succinic acid in the global market and establish its leading position in the production of biosuccinic acid. DSM and Roquette Co., Ltd. combined their strengths in materials science, biotechnology and plant raw material processing to form a strong driving force for Reverdia's development.

Bio-based succinic acid is extracted from non-fossil raw materials, and its sustainable production technology can minimize the carbon footprint in the production process. Bio-based succinic acid is an essential raw material for the production of polymers, resins, and many other products. Its applications cover many areas such as footwear, packaging materials, and coatings.

Reverdia will be the first company in the world to commercialize bio-based succinic acid on a large scale. Its products will be branded BiosucciniumTM and marketed. The world-class sustainable fermentation technology used by Reverdia has been developed since 2008.

The new plant will be put into operation at the end of the third quarter of 2012, with a designed capacity of 10,000 tons. It is located at the production facility of Roquette in Cassano Spinola, Italy. It is adjacent to the port of Genoa and has convenient transportation. Efficient global logistics network.

The on-site production of starch raw materials enables full backward integration. In addition, the combination of steam and electricity, as well as the use of on-site wastewater treatment systems, have also minimized the level of carbon footprint in the production of BiosucciniumTM products.

According to Will van den Tweel, general manager of Reverdia, “BiosucciniumTM uses the most advanced and sustainable production technology in the world. Its bio-based succinic acid products are of superior quality and performance. With the current market use of bacterial technology Instead of producing bio-based succinic acid, Reverdia's unique patented yeast technology converts sugars to succinic acid. This new process is simple and stable, with low energy consumption, high raw material utilization, and a substantial increase in product purity.”

As early as January 2010, DSM and Roquette built a demonstration plant in Lestrem, France, and put this production technology into practical use, and continued to improve and optimize it, in order to prepare the product for large-scale marketing. Jean-Pierre Vannier, Director of Operations at Reverdia, stated: “In the operation of our demonstration plant in Lestrem, we have accumulated the relevant technical experience in the BiosucciniumTM production process, coupled with our own expertise in large-scale processing and installation, we believe this commercial plant The start will be very smooth."

BiosucciniumTM will highlight the advantages of renewable and sustainable products. With the start of large-scale commercial production, bio-based succinic acid will challenge the status of petrochemical succinic acid and petrochemical adipic acid. Currently, the succinic acid produced by the petrochemical process is mainly used in the fields of medicines, foods, paints, and pigments. The emergence of BiosucciniumTM marks the birth of succinic acid with high quality, sustainability, and great market competitiveness. Reverdia I believe that in the near future, the application of succinic acid will be even broader. In addition to competitive market prices, BiosucciniumTM is not only widely used for polyester polyols, polybutylene succinate (PBS), plasticizers, 1.4 butanediol, and synthesis due to its unique sustainable advantages. Chemical materials such as resins and coating resins can also be applied to many end markets such as packaging materials, footwear, spandex fabrics, shopping bags, plastic films, and automotive interiors.
