Seppic and Ecovia Renewables partner to create and market biopolymers

Seppic and Ecovia Renewables have entered into a partnership to develop and market high-performing, biobased and biodegradable polymers.

Seppic, a subsidiary of Air Liquide Healthcare specialising in the development and marketing of specialty ingredients for health and beauty, is partnering with Ecovia Renewables, a US company focusing on the research and development of high-performing biobased chemicals. In practice, the two companies have signed a joint development agreement and Seppic has taken an equity stake in Ecovia Renewables.

The aim of this partnership is to develop and market high-performance and environmental-friendly ingredients to manufacturers of beauty and healthcare products.

Due to growing environmental awareness and increasing focus on health and wellness, consumers are looking more and more for natural and sustainable products,” says the company in a release.

Biomass fermentation

Ecovia Renewables has developed a ground-breaking platform technology to produce biobased ingredients through a proprietary fermentation process using renewable biomass. It will be combined with Seppic’s expertise in formulation and large-scale production of specialty ingredients.

Seppic and Ecovia Renewables will jointly develop biopolymers that the Seppic Group will market globally on an exclusive basis for all topical applications.

This partnership with Ecovia Renewables is fully aligned with Seppic strategy to design, develop and market ingredients that bring strong environmental and health benefits. Responsible innovation is at the heart of this strategy and this partnership is a significant milestone and a new success for our open innovation initiative,” commented Jean-Baptiste Dellon, CEO of the Seppic Group.
