BioAmber is a next-generation chemicals company with a focus on bio-sourced intermediates and particularly succinic acid. The company’s proprietary technology platform combines an exceptional know-how in fermentation, an innovative purification process and chemical catalysis to convert renewable feedstocks into chemicals that are cost-competitive replacements for petroleum-derived chemicals. BioAmber currently sells its first product, bio-succinic acid, to customers in a variety of chemical markets in connection with its product and market development efforts. BioAmber manufactures its bio-succinic acid in a facility using a commercial scale 350,000 liter fermenter in Pomacle, France, which the company believes to be one of the largest bio-based chemical manufacturing facilities in the world.
