US-based Invista and computational biology company SilicoLife announce a collaboration for the development of new technologies to enable bio-derived processes for the production of industrial chemicals.
One of the initial focus areas by the two companies will be bio-derived production of butadiene.
The agreement will leverage Invista's capabilities in biotechnology and catalysis, and knowledge of the chemicals industry, and SilicoLife's in silico metabolic engineering and rational synthetic biology capabilities for the development of new bio-based routes to industrial chemicals.
"Invista is constantly seeking innovative approaches to advance its position in biotechnology," said Warren Primeaux, President of Invista Intermediates. "We anticipate this collaboration with SilicoLife will help us accelerate our timeline to develop new bio-derived processes for a range of industrial chemicals — helping us further improves our cost and sustainability position in this area."
According to Simão Soares, CEO of SilicoLife, "The collaboration with Invista combines our state-of-the art engineering expertise with Invista's world class research team to accelerate the design of optimized microbial strains for the cost-effective production of industrial chemicals from renewable feedstocks."
