Amyris and Firmenich Join Hands to Develop Bio-based Fragrance Ingredient
Amyris, the US-based industrial bioscience company, is collaborating with Swiss fragrance maker, Firmenich, to support the development and commercialization of Z11. This sustainable and cost-effective version of Firmenich’s iconic Z11 molecule was developed using Amyris’s proprietary technology to develop a reliable and sustainable supply of an intermediate, using a fermentation-based production process, for which Firmenich has then applied its proprietary green chemistry.
“We are pleased with our ability to support Firmenich’s product innovation as they continue to be a leader in developing game-changing ingredients for their customers,” said Mr. John Melo, President & CEO of Amyris. “Amyris has collaborated with Firmenich since 2010, successfully growing a palette of bio-based fragrance ingredients and intermediates as Firmenich continues their legacy of providing the finest ingredients well into the future, with the added benefit of being derived from a sustainable resource,” he added.
