Welcome to the Bio-based Material Quarterly Newsletter Q1 2023.

In the quarter, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China (MIIT), National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and other government bodies jointly issued the Three-Year Action Plan for Accelerating the Non-Grain Bio-Based Material Innovative Development, setting targets by 2025 to push the lactic acid (LA) production capacity to 100,000 t/a, and the pentamethylene diamine (PDA) and polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) capacity to 10,000 t/a.

Market dynamics & company performance
Kingfa's 30,000 t/a PLA project has entered stable production; and there are updates of the PLA projects of BBCA Biochemical, Shanghai Kingfo, Tieling Yingzhihao, Golden Far East, Juyuan New Material and new proposals of PLA projects of Guangdong Sisan and Inner Mongolia Heguang. Hisun Biomaterials reported a 3.49% growth in 2022 revenue and pure PLA sales growing by 8.88% YoY.

Anhui Yinchuang's 1,000 t/a succinic acid (SA) project, Shandong Qiantai's 1,500 t/a SA project and Land Biological's SA technological upgrade and transformation project, have moved further during the pre-construction phase; Zhongke Biotech's diacid & long-chain polyamides project was approved; Cathay Biotech's long-chain polyamide project was postponed to start up to Dec. 2023; and Xinxiang Chemical and Sichuan Siliya were ramping up their biomass-derived cellulose fibre capacity.

More are included: Bluepha launched its first Bluephaâ„¢ PHA; Huafon Group's 30,000 t/a bio-based PTT project was soon to be approved; SynMetabio planned to expand the Naro Leather production with the raised funding of over RMB10 million; Eyougene Biotech was pacing up to commercialise FCDA with the raised funding of over RMB100 million; HANVO Safety teamed up with Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT) to bring further the R&D and application of bio-based degradable polyester rubber materials; the (EIA) document of Zhongke Juhe's PEF and PCT pilot project was approved shedding light on the details.

In the period of Q1, there was a general decline in the PLA prices, while the PHA prices have remain flat.
