Trevira uses Genomatica BDO for technical fibre

Oct '13
Genomatica announced that additional companies have made sample parts that use BDO made with its bio-based process technology. In June, Lanxess announced that it had converted 20 tons of BDO made with Genomatica's process at their world-scale PBT plant.

Now, some of Lanxess' customers have used that PBT to make sample parts, and two are showcasing samples at Lanxess' booth (#C76/78 in hall 06) at the international K Trade Fair, which is focused on the plastics and rubber industries.

Trevira, a leading maker of high-tech polyester fibers and filaments, has made a non-woven technical textile fibre, which is often used in protective clothing.

"These materials are the latest examples of the application usability of bio-based BDO made with Genomatica's commercial process technology," said Christophe Schilling, Ph.D., CEO of Genomatica. "These proof points follow announcements by Lanxess, DSM, Toray, and Far Eastern New Century – along with detailed technical support – validating Genomatica's process. We believe that licensees of our technology will find ever-increasing application demand for the renewable and proven version of BDO that they are bringing to the market."
