Published on 2015-02-23. Author : SpecialChem

Pivotal patents have been granted to DSM in Europe, Japan and Canada for its innovative yeast-based succinic acid production technology, with exclusive rights awarded to Reverdia. The new patents cover key technology which is essential to make economically-viable and sustainable bio-based succinic acid.

Reverdia President Marcel Lubben said, “Reverdia has developed and commercialized best-in-class, sustainable yeast-based biosuccinic acid technology, proven at commercial scale in our plant located within the Roquette Italian biorefinery. These latest patents are key to making bio-succinic acid commercially-viable.”

“We will be offering access to this technology under license, in line with our licensing strategy announced in October 2014. Reverdia will continue to strengthen its patent portfolio to ensure the best and most defensible technology offering for its licensees,” he added.

1/ CA 2730595 entitled LOW PH DICARBOXYLIC ACID PRODUCTION was granted in Canada on 16 December 2014.
2/ EP2220232 entitled SUCCINIC ACID PRODUCTION IN A EUKARYOTIC CELL was granted in Europe on 3 September 2014.
3/ JP5641938 entitled SUCCINIC ACID PRODUCTION IN A EUKARYOTIC CELL was granted in Japan on 7 November 2014.
4/ CA 2704654 entitled SUCCINIC ACID PRODUCTION IN A EUKARYOTIC CELL was granted in Canada on 10 February 2015.

About Reverdia
In June 2010, Royal DSM N.V., the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company headquartered in the Netherlands, and Roquette Frères, the global starch and starch-derivatives company headquartered in France, announced the signing of a joint venture (JV) agreement, named Reverdia, for the production, commercialization and market development of Biosuccinium™, sustainable succinic acid.

Biosuccinium™ is the first non-fossil feedstock derived chemical building block that allows customers in the chemical industry to choose a bio-based alternative with a lower eco-footprint for a broad range of applications, from packaging to footwear.

Since early 2008, it has been working to develop the best and most sustainable fermentative technology to produce bio-based succinic acid with testing volumes of Biosuccinium™ produced in a demonstration plant in Lestrem (France) built in 2008.
