Zeachem partner with Procter and Gamble to develop drop-in biobased chemical platform

ZeaChem Inc. announced a joint development agreement with Procter & Gamble to maximize the sustainability of P&G’s products and packaging. ZeaChem specialize in biomass-to-chemical refineries, using renewable feedstocks such as poplar and biobased fermentation technologies, which they claim produces high yields and low carbon emissions. The agreement centers on ZeaChem’s C2 platform which produces “drop in” biobased chemicals such as acetic acid, ethyl acetate and ethylene glycol which are used in a number of P&G products. Together ZeaChem and P&G will develop and scale-up the platform, so that P&G will have a reliable supply of renewable materials for their own manufacturing processes.
