Isoprene

Our technology platform is able to produce building blocks with the potential to provide an array of new renewable polymers serving a variety of markets.

One area of great promise is isoprene for tires where isoprene is used to produce synthetic rubber. Working with Michelin and Braskem we’ve explored the development and commercialization of renewable isoprene from plant sugars to enable the manufacture of high-performance tires with several beneficial properties.
