Invista, SilicoLife to develop bio-derived processes for industrial chemicals

WICHITA, US/GUIMARAES, PORTUGAL: SilicoLife, computational biology company, and Invista will collaborate for the development of new technologies to enable bio-derived processes for the production of industrial chemicals. The two companies will further co-develop their technology platforms. The initial focus areas will be bio-derived production of butadiene.

The agreement will leverage Invista’s capabilities in biotechnology and catalysis, and knowledge of the chemicals industry, and SilicoLife’s in silico metabolic engineering and rational synthetic biology capabilities for the development of new bio-based routes to industrial chemicals.

“Invista is constantly seeking innovative approaches to advance its position in biotechnology. We anticipate this collaboration with SilicoLife will help us accelerate our timeline to develop new bio-derived processes for a range of industrial chemicals -helping us further improve our cost and sustainability position in this area,” said Warren Primeaux, President, Invista Intermediates.
