Verdezyne, Inc. Key Developments

Verdezyne, Inc. to Build Bio-Based Dodecanedioic Acid Plant in Malaysia

Verdezyne, Inc. announced it has reached an agreement with Bio-XCell Malaysia to construct Verdezyne's commercial-scale renewable chemicals manufacturing facility in Bio-XCell's premier biotechnology and Ecosystem Park in Nusajaya, Iskandar, in southern Malaysia. With construction scheduled to commence in 2015, the plant will be capable of producing approximately 30 million pounds per year of diacids, including dodecanedioic acid (DDDA), and will be the world's first bio-based plant for the production of DDDA. The exchange of agreement ceremony took place during the official opening ceremony of ‘BioMalaysia: Bioeconomy Asia Pacific 2014 Conference & Exhibition,’ and was attended by Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak. The manufacturing facility will leverage Verdezyne's yeast fermentation technology with the abundant supplies of non-food, plant-based feedstocks in Malaysia to produce a variety of commercial diacids, including DDDA. These diacids may in turn be used to produce nylon or other polymers for use in a variety of applications including: engineering resins, automotive parts, athletic apparel, carpeting and toothbrush bristles, at lower cost than traditional, petroleum-derived nylons.
