Evolva reaches milestone in BASF collaboration

31-Jan-2013 - Switzerland

Evolva Holding SA announced that it has achieved a key milestone in its collaboration with BASF. The collaboration involves joint research on the design of novel and optimised biosynthetic routes for a natural product with crop protection potential.

Evolva has produced a yeast strain that achieves a fermentation yield that exceeds the project requirement. Based on this achievement, BASF has made a low six-digit Swiss Franc milestone payment to Evolva.

Evolva will be entitled to receive royalties on sales of any future product, resulting from this collaboration.
