The Same Chemicals, the Same Products—Just a Lot Greener At Myriant, we know there's a better, greener way to produce the products people use every day. And we're realizing that vision—displacing barrels of petroleum by manufacturing and selling high-value chemicals made from renewable, sustainable feedstocks. As companies and consumers look for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and transition away from petroleum's price volatility, Myriant has the solution: our proven technology platform and strategic feedstock selection enable Myriant to deliver high-quality, high-performing, green chemicals at a competitive, more-predictable cost versus petroleum-based chemicals without the need for government subsidies. That's what we call a sustainable advantage. Our platform produces a broad pipeline of bio-based chemicals including bio-succinic acid and its derivatives and other bio-based chemical intermediates that perform equal to, or better than, traditional petroleum-based chemicals. Our bio-based chemicals integrate seamlessly into existing chemical production processes to provide a wide range of consumer applications.
