JM Davy and Rennovia partner to develop production technology for biobased glucaric acid and adipic acid [Registered]

Johnson Matthey Davy Technologies Ltd. (JM Davy) and Rennovia are partnering to develop and commercialize catalytic process technologies for the production of bio-based glucaric acid and adipic acid. Under the partnership, Rennovia and JM Davy will work together to develop the processes based on Rennovia’s technology for the catalytic aerobic oxidation of glucose to glucaric acid, as well as the catalytic hydrogenation of glucaric acid to adipic acid. The goal is to develop and jointly license a technology package enabling commercial production of these chemical products. Adipic acid, an industrial chemical conventionally derived from petroleum, is a multi-billion dollar global…
