QUINCY, US: Myriant Corporation has made substantial progress towards the production of cost-competitive bio-acrylic acid made from renewable feedstocks. Myriant has filed for patent protection with the US Patent and Trademark Office for its bio-acrylic acid process and will immediately initiate scale-up activities to provide product samples to customers in the second half of 2012. Myriant expects that its bio-acrylic acid product will be cost competitive, compared to petroleum-based acrylic acid without the need for government subsidies or green premiums.

“Myriant is aggressively advancing our pipeline and diversifying our product offering of bio-based chemicals. Bio-acrylic acid, like our first two products, is an important chemical building-block monomer and demand exists for affordable, high-performing drop in bio-acrylic acid for existing large market applications. Strategically and operationally, this is an important pipeline expansion product for the Company,” said Cenan Ozmeral, Chief Operating Officer, Myriant.
