BioAmber Inc. Enters into Technology License with Johnson Matthey Davy Technologies

BioAmber Inc. announced it has entered into a technology license with Johnson Matthey Davy Technologies (JM Davy). The licensing package will enable BioAmber to construct and operate a 100,000 ton per year capacity plant that uses bio-succinic acid as the feedstock to produce 70,000 tons of 1,4-butanediol (BDO) and 30,000 tons of tetrahydrofuran (THF). BioAmber has also secured the right to license the JM Davy technology for two additional BDO/THF plants. The JM Davy license is a major milestone for BioAmber's next commercial plant and will help the Company to accelerate deployment of its BDO/THF facility, which it plans to commission in 2018. BioAmber has already signed a 15 year take-or-pay agreement with Vinmar International for 100% of the output from the plant's 100,000 ton per year BDO and THF capacity. BioAmber will leverage its low cost bio-succinic acid technology and JM Davy's proven catalyst technology to produce cost competitive bio-based BDO and THF. These building block chemicals have large existing markets of over $4 billion annually and are used to make engineering plastics for the automotive and electronics industries, biodegradable plastics and spandex. Consumers will benefit from having exactly the same products they enjoy, but with a significantly improved carbon footprint due to the renewable, fossil-free feedstock that are used and BioAmber's more sustainable manufacturing process.
