At the Green Chemicals Blog, writer Doris de Guzman took the occasion of our recent joint news release with Piedmont Chemical and DuPont Tate & Lyle (DTL) to do what she so often does so well: add interpretive value and provide additional global market information. About our collaboration with Piedmont and DTL, for example, she writes: This is an interesting non-exclusive deal that could guarantee more interest and development in the applications of 100% bio-based polyester polyols. She then references a recent study by Markets and Markets showing that …the global 1,3-propanediol market will grow from an estimated $157m in 2012 to $560m in 2019 with a compound annual growth rate of 19.9% during the period of 2012 to 2019.
There’s more. Noting that Dupont Tate & Lyle is the only bulk producer of 1,3-PDO, she nevertheless provides a quick overview of others in, or possibly about to enter, this segment.
Her post, titled “Polyols from bio-PDO and succinic acid,” is here.
