Reverdia, Helm collaborate for biosuccinic acid in Europe

GELEEN, THE NETHERLANDS: Reverdia, a joint venture between DSM and Roquette, and Helm have signed an agreement for the European distribution and joint market development of Reverdia’s Biosuccinium sustainable succinic acid. The partnership will build on Helm’s strong position in Europe as a marketing enterprise and distributor for a wide portfolio of chemical products, and Reverdia’s emerging leadership position for the commercialization of renewable succinic acid.

Biosuccinium sustainable succinic acid is a new renewable raw material, derived from non-fossil feedstock and produced with unique and proprietary yeast-based fermentation technology resulting in the production of bio-based succinic acid with best-in-class quality, economics and environmental footprint. The technology has been proven in the 300 tonne demo plant in Lestrem, France, that has been operational since early 2010.

Reverdia will be the first in the world to have a large scale facility for the commercial production of bio-based succinic acid, which is currently being completed in Cassano Spinola, Italy. The plant is scheduled to be operational by the end of 2012.

“Our partnership with Helm will deliver expanded market development capacity for Reverdia in Europe. Helm is an experienced distributor and strong marketing company. We are pleased with Helm’s active support to bring Biosuccinium to many more interested direct and indirect customers,” said Jo Kockelkoren, Commercial Director, Reverdia.
