INVISTA, one of the world’s largest integrated producers of polymers and fibers, and Ingenza, a leading industrial biotechnology and synthetic biology company, announce a collaboration for the development of new technologies to enable bio-derived processes for the production of industrial chemicals.

The collaboration will leverage INVISTA’s capabilities in biotechnology and catalysis, and knowledge of the chemicals industry, and Ingenza’s synthetic biology and industrial biotechnology capabilities for the development of new, bio-derived routes to industrial chemicals.
