Scale-up of Zymes' PTS by Albemarle responds to the demand in food, beverage and nutritional markets

BATON ROUGE, La., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Leading specialty chemical company, Albemarle Corporation, (NYSE: ALB) and innovative bioscience company, Zymes LLC, have joined forces to scale-up production of Zymes' proprietary "Ubisol-Aqua(TM)" solubilization technology, PTS. The next generation technology promotes the clear dissolution of non-water-soluble vitamins and natural functional ingredients in water, a long sought after capability that allows food, beverage and nutritional supplement manufacturers to effectively add water-insoluble nutrients to liquid products without the typical cloudy effects. This development is expected to significantly increase the commercialization opportunities for these products.
