Evonik clinches deal for biobased methionine

Department: Business
Keywords: agriculture, amino acids, methionine, Evonik

Successfully completing a bid that was announced last month, Evonik Industries has signed an agreement to acquire Metabolic Explorer’s fermentation-derived methionine business for about $48 million. Evonik currently produces methionine, an animal feed additive, via a petrochemical route, although it uses fermentation to produce other amino acids. Evonik says the acquisition will expand its technological leadership in amino acid production.
