Company delivers on promise to come on-stream before year’s end, using unique and proprietary low-pH yeast technology to make Biosuccinium™ with best-in-class environmental footprint.
Reverdia, the joint venture between life sciences and materials sciences company DSM and Roquette Frères, a global producer of starch and starch-derivatives, has begun operations in Cassano Spinola, Italy, at a commercial-scale plant producing Biosuccinium™ sustainable succinic acid.
