Bio–Chemicals Project Researches Fermentation of Industrial Chemicals from Waste Gas
Invista and CPI have started researches on new technologies to enable biological fermentation-based processes for the production of industrial chemicals from gas feedstocks.
Wichita/Canada – The collaboration aims to leverage Invista's expertise in industrial biotechnology and CPI’s knowledge in science and engineering. The aim is to develop processes and products for the fermentation of industrial chemicals for industrial scale, gas based, bioprocesses.
“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 of Invista Intermediates.
Nigel Perry, CEO of CPI said, “Following the recent and significant advances in the field of Synthetic Biology, CPI believes that gas-fermentation technology holds great promise to unlock the economic production of commodity products. We are looking forward to collaborating on this venture which will leverage the synergy between the leading positions of Invista and CPI.”
