WHO WE ARE

Synvina is a joint venture between BASF and Avantium, headquartered in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. We came together with the aim of producing and marketing furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) and marketing polyethylenefuranoate (PEF). These newly developed products will bring major performance improvements such as increased barrier properties and thinner packaging for various applications in the packaging industry.

“We are a joint venture between Avantium and BASF, two companies that bring contrasting but complementary qualities to the enterprise. Avantium offers the YXY® technology process, application development expertise, a pilot plant and its partner relationships. BASF bring their unique capabilities in engineering, large-scale production, a worldwide sales network and market development experience. Together we will lead the bio-based plastics market into a new dimension.”
