Enzymatic polymerization-based polysaccharide platform technology
DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences and Kemira announced an exclusive partnership for the development and commercialization of DuPont’s enzymatic polymerization-based polysaccharide platform technology. The collaboration will bring new, biobased and inherently biodegradable product lines to Kemira’s strategic markets.
DuPont will provide Kemira with access to its newest material platform technology, which uses enzymatic polymerization to design and produce polysaccharide materials directly from simple sugars. Kemira will provide the application development expertise and the market access required to jointly develop and commercialize these sustainable material offerings globally to Kemira’s strategic markets.
Global markets in paper and board, water treatment and oil & gas
The unique family of designed polysaccharides derived from the enzymatic polymerization platform technology will be offered exclusively to Kemira’s global markets in paper and board, water treatment and the oil & gas industries.
