U.S. Department of Agriculture Launches New Biobased Product Label
Posted on : 24 Feb, 2011
Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced the launch of a new Biobased product label as part of its BioPreferred Program. This voluntary product certification and labeling program aims to clearly identify biobased products made from renewable resources and promote the sale & use of these products to consumers.
With this added boost to the global biobased chemical industry, what will be the outlook for the sector in the coming year? What are the key strategies and plans for renewable chemicals companies in achieving commercialization for their biobased products?
To answer these questions and more, the BiobasedChemAsia summit (Shanghai, 14-15 April 2011) will gather an international panel of experts to provide first-hand insights. One may view the full agenda here.
Myriant to Build World’s Largest Succinic Acid Plant in Louisiana
Posted on : 25 Jan, 2011
Myriant Technologies will build the world’s largest biobased succinic acid plant at Louisiana’s Port of Lake Providence, the firm’s CEO, Stephen J. Gatto, announced on Dec. 28 in a joint statement with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
The $80 million Myriant plant will use sorghum as a feedstock to produce up to 15,000 tons of succinic acid per year. The project received $50 million in Department of Energy funding last year as part of the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009. DOE has named succinic acid one of the top 12 biobased products with potential as chemical building blocks.
The plant will begin operations in 2012, Myriant says, and will employ 49 workers. It will be the first plant to make biobased succinic acid on a commercial scale.
