Growing Our Leadership Position in the Bio-succinic Market

In 2008, Reverdia, operating under a joint development agreement with Royal DSM and Roquette Frères, began the production in succinic acid – a chemical building block used in the manufacture of polymers, resins, food and pharmaceuticals among other products – for the first time using biological means.

Reverdia validated their proprietary technology to produce succinic acid from starch at their demo plant which began operations in 2010 and ran successfully for two years.

In December 2012, Reverdia began operations in Cassano Spinola, Italy, at a 10 kt commercial-scale plant producing Biosuccinium® sustainable succinic acid. As the plant was built on the Roquette-Cassano site near Port of Genoa, Reverdia has full integration benefits of specialized work-force, feedstocks and utilities, optimizing the carbon footprint during production.

Biorefinery Model

The production of Biosuccinium™ utilizes an integrated biorefinery to enable production of bio-based succinic acid in an economically and ecologically sound manner. Our first commercial Biosuccinium™ facility in Cassano, Italy converts bio-based feedstock by hydrolysis and low pH yeast fermentation to Biosuccinium™. The site uses co-generation of steam and electricity as well as on-site waste water treatment to ensure the best life cycle analysis. The nearness to a harbor ensures efficient global logistics.
