BASF, Cargill and Novozymes have signed an agreement to develop technologies to produce acrylic acid from renewable raw materials.
Presently, acrylic acid is produced by the oxidation of propylene derived from the refining of crude oil but the aim is to develop bio-based technologies to produce acrylic acid from renewable feedstocks.
“The cooperation combines BASF’s global market strength and innovation power with the excellent know-how and competencies of Novozymes and Cargill who are global leaders in their respective industry segments. Together we are uniquely positioned to more sustainably meet market and society needs”, said Michael Heinz, Member of the Board of Executive Directors of BASF SE.
