Roquette/Rhodia Acetow: Development Agreement

Roquette, Lestrem, France, and Rhodia Acetow GmbH, Freiburg, Germany, have signed a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) to develop new plant-based polymers. The JDA will enable both companies to leverage synergies bringing together respective competencies in the field of plant-based polymer chemistry.

Jean Bernard Leleu, deputy CEO and research innovation development director of Roquette commented: “Our goal is to continuously search for new solutions in growth markets and to boost our competitiveness with new technologies. This agreement is an excellent opportunity to speed up the development of a new range of starch derivatives, offering a cost competitive and sustainable alternative to fossil based polymers.”

“This JDA will accelerate the launch of new polymers based on renewable raw material, for which the demand is drastically increasing. The plant-based polymer cellulose acetate and cellulose acetate fiber will remain the key products for Rhodia Acetow. This agreement is one first step towards the diversification of our product portfolio,” stated Gérard Collette, president of Rhodia Acetow.

Some trials of starch acetate production will be carried out from early 2012 providing several tons which will be available for testing in diverse industrial applications.
