Succinic Acid

Succinic acid (SA) is a major feedstock to several chemicals in the process industry including 1,4-Butanediol, polyester, tetrahydrofuran and pyrollidone. Moreover, it can replace other chemicals directly, including adipic acid for polyurethane applications and maleic anhydride for all applications. It has potential to become a valuable feedstock for both commodity (high volume) and specialty (high value) chemicals. THLs patent pending technology converts methane to succinic acid through biosynthetic route. The global market for succinic acid is estimated to be $215.4 million in 2015.
