Further Notes
About OPX: The company had been focused over the past few years in developing applications to produce 3-HP (3-hydroxypropionic acid) via fermentation, which is then converted in one step to bio-based acrylic acid. But the company had pathways to a multi-billion dollar market, via a collection of target molecules, including: butanol, BDO, 3-HP, acetyl-CoA, malonyl-CoA, malonate semialdehyde, 3-HP, acrylic acid, PDO, malonic acid, ethyl 3-HP, propiolactone, acrylonitrile, acrylamide, methyl acrylate, a polymer including super absorbent polymers and polyacrylic acid. OPX Bio has developed what is generally believed to be a world-class capability in strain and metabolic engineering towards that end. (Cargill acquired OPX fermentation technologies in 2015)
