French Firms End Methionine Pact

Department: Business
Keywords: biobased chemicals, methionine, feed additives

Roquette and Metabolic Explorer are ending an agreement to jointly develop a new route to the amino acid l-methionine. The two French companies worked together for several years to develop a biobased process for the feed additive, which is now manufactured synthetically. According to Metabolic Explorer, their work met technical objectives, but Roquette isn’t prepared to invest in a commercial plant. The firm says Roquette will help it find a new partner.
