Invista and SilicoLife to collaborate on bio-derived raw materials

Mary Page Bailey

Invista (Wichita, Kan.; www.invista.com) and Portuguese computational biology company SilicoLife have announced collaboration for the development of new technologies to enable bio-derived processes for the production of industrial chemicals. The two companies are collaborating in order to further co-develop their technology platforms. One of the initial focus areas will be bio-derived production of butadiene. The agreement will leverage INVISTA’s capabilities in biotechnology and catalysis, and knowledge of the chemicals industry, and SilicoLife’s in silico metabolic engineering and rational synthetic biology capabilities for the development of new bio-based routes to industrial chemicals.
