by Debra Fiakas Management of sustainable chemical developer BioAmber (BIOA:  NYSE; BIOA:  TSX) have not been feeling much love from the capital markets.  The BioAmber team just wants some consideration for its proprietary platform for production of bio-based succinic acid.  Historically succinic acid has been produced from fossil fuel and sold as an intermediate input for use in drug compounds, agriculture and food production.  BioAmber has fine tuned a fermentation process to transform organic materials such as dextrose sugars into a bio-succinic acid. BioAmber’s woes began last fall when the New York Stock Exchange sent the company a notice of non-compliance with NYSE...

BioAmber Launching Asian Joint Venture

Amber Waves of Gain In South Korea, BioAmber (BIOA) and CJ CheilJedang Corporation signed a LOI for a joint venture in China to produce up to 36,000 metric tons of bio-succinic acid per year.

On Sunday, January 5, 60 Minutes aired a piece on the cleantech space. In the days that followed, I have had interesting conversations with clients about what was broadcast to 7.4 million viewers. Those discussions reinforced my belief that 60 minutes missed the mark and inspired me to write this blog on why cleantech is essential, massive, vibrant, and desired. Cleantech is essential. We recently took fifteen clients to China on our annual tour, and the Beijing Air Quality index (AQI) of PM2.5 read above 200 on multiple days. The average AQI in Los Angeles, California, through 2009...
