2021年2月2日,斯泰潘(Stepan)公司宣布已完成了对位于路易斯安那州普罗维登斯湖的发酵工厂的收购。交易的财务条款没有透露。 

“发酵是Stepan公司的一项新技术,我们希望将下一代表面活性剂商业化。通过发酵生产的生物表面活性剂具有良好的生物降解性,低毒性,在某些情况下还具有独特的抗菌特性,因此具有吸引力。” Stepan公司董事长兼首席执行官F. Quinn Stepan Jr.说。

对于农业,油田,个人护理以及家庭,工业和机构清洁市场的客户而言,生物表面活性剂是有吸引力的配方选择。2020年3月,Stepan完成了对NATSURFACT的收购,NATSURFACT是一种基于鼠李糖脂的可再生资源生物表面活性剂系列。NATSURFACT的鼠李糖脂技术提供了一个重要的新选择,因为各个市场的客户都在为其产品寻求新的可持续发展目标。

“收购工业规模的发酵工厂代表了我们生物表面活性剂商业化努力的最新一步。借助额外的投资,我们希望能够从该地点每年生产20,000吨生物表面活性剂。我们期待与客户合作,将这些下一代表面活性剂推向市场。” Stepan说。

NORTHFIELD, Ill., Feb. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Stepan Company (NYSE: SCL) today reported that it has closed on the acquisition of a fermentation plant located in Lake Providence, Louisiana. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. 

"Fermentation is a new platform technology for Stepan Company as we look to commercialize next generation surfactants. Bio-surfactants, produced via fermentation, are attractive due to their favorable biodegradability, low toxicity, and in some cases, unique antimicrobial properties," said F. Quinn Stepan Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Stepan Company.

Bio-surfactants can be an attractive formulation option for customers in the agriculture, oilfield, personal care and household, industrial and institutional cleaning markets. In March 2020, Stepan closed on the acquisition of NATSURFACT®, a rhamnolipid-based line of bio-surfactants derived from renewable sources. NATSURFACT's rhamnolipid technology provides an important new option as customers across markets seek new sustainability targets for their products.

"The acquisition of an industrial scale fermentation plant represents the latest step in our bio-surfactant commercialization efforts. With additional investment, we expect to be able to produce 20,000 metric tons per year of bio-surfactants from the site.  We look forward to working with our customers to bring these next generation surfactants to the market," Stepan said.
