BIOLON® Dodecanedioic Acid (DDDA)

Dodecanedioic acid (DDDA) is used in the production of high-performance nylon 6,12, molding resins, as well as adhesives and powder coatings. It is traditionally produced from butadiene via a multi-step chemical process. Verdezyne has leveraged its yeast platform for cost-advantaged production of DDDA from low cost plant-oil sourced feedstocks. Verdezyne’s BIOLON  DDDA is a valuable target intermediate which will transform the nylon 6,12 market.
