BioAmber’s new succinic acid plant in Ontario.

BioAmber has opened a 30,000-metric-ton-per-year biobased succinic acid facility in Sarnia, Ontario. The $141.5 million plant, a joint project with Mitsui & Co., produces the intermediate chemical from corn dextrose via fermentation. The company says it will sell succinic acid into markets including plastics, paints, artificial leather, food ingredients, and personal care. It claims to have customer commitments for the plant’s entire output.
