During the 2016 BIO World Congress in San Diego, Reverdia (Italy), the dedicated JV belonging to Roquette France and Royal DSM (The Netherlands) announced that its BIOSUCCINIUM® succinic acid, in combination with Roquette’s POLYSORB® isosorbide, is being used in paints and coatings by the well-known European producer Mader.
The new CADELI® paint range commercialized under the brand CAMI®, reportedly has key attractive physical properties such as hardness and scratch resistance. Specific formulations in the CADELI® range provide additional functionalities such as anti-microbial and anti-formaldehyde effects for interior paint. Both formulations are 98% bio-based and EU-Ecolabel certified.
Reverdia also announced two new collaborative partnerships:
#1 with UK-based food tray producer, Sharpak, and UK retailer Waitrose on the development of biodegradable plastic packaging and products using PBS (polybutylene succinate);
#2 with Covestro ( Germany / formerly named Bayer Material Science) on the development of thermoplatic polyurethane for use in applications such as footwear and consumer electronics. See more on Covestro’s PU development via biobased-material-conference-2016
