BASF sells marine biopolymers business to Seagarden ASA
The divestment of the Chitosan business from former Cognis results from the portfolio optimization following the acquisition of Cognis by BASF in 2010. The Chitosan business including the production site in Tromsoe, Norway, will be owned by the Norwegian specialist for natural seafood ingredients, marine bioactives and biopolymers, Seagarden SAS through its subsidiary Chitinor AS.
