Adisseo to Develop Bio-Based Methionine


Adisseo and biotech collective TWB have jointly developed a bio-based synthesis for L-methionine.  It is intended to develop a pilot plant by 2020.  The development follows a parallel acquisition of a bio-based methionine synthesis system by Evonik Industries from metabolic explorer in 2017.


Providing the bio-based methionine processors do not make use of a GMO organism, availability of a nutrient supplement which could be accepted by the National Organic Program would reduce the cost o production of eggs and poultry meat and displace conventional synthetic methionine which is subject to progressive reduction in dietary inclusion.
