Invista, CPI JV for gas-fermentation process technologies

10:58 AM, 11th December 2013

WICHITA, US/WILTON, UK: Invista and The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) collaborate for the development of new technologies to enable gas-fermentation-based processes for the production of industrial chemicals. The collaboration will leverage Invista’s capabilities in biotechnology and catalysis, and knowledge of the chemicals industry, along with CPI’s applied knowledge in science and engineering and capabilities in new process/product development and scale-up for the development of new gas-fermentation-based routes to industrial chemicals.

“Invista believes biotechnology has the potential to significantly improve the cost and availability of several chemicals and raw materials that are used to produce its current products. We see gas fermentation as a key enabling technology that will allow the use of potentially advantaged gas feedstocks such as waste industrial gases. CPI’s excellent capabilities and facilities are additive to our own, and we are pleased to announce this exciting collaboration,” said Warren Primeaux, President, Invista Intermediates.
