Nylon 6.6 feedstock adipic acid from renewable sources (2-1-2012)
An environmental friendly substitute has been developed for nylon 6.6 feedstock adipic acid. A company called Verdezyne, which just opened a pilot plant in Carlsbad, California, has developed a fermentation process to make adipic acid from renewable sources like non-food based vegetable oils. The plant is the first-ever to produce bio-based adipic acid at scale from a non-petroleum source, and at a cheaper rate. Verdezyne's platform allows the microorganism to utilize sugar, plant-based oils or alkanes from a variety of feedstocks, free from shocks to production costs from future energy volatility.
With financial backing provided by venture partners including BP Alternative Energy, the company continues to work on developing strategic partnerships for its bio-based adipic acid
