Founded in 1997, Cathay Industrial Biotech is the first and only industrial biotechnology company that has realized commercial-scale production of revolutionary products,including long chain dibasic acids (LCDA), biobutanol, and bio-based DN5 (1,5-pentanediamine).
Cathay focuses on the independent R&D of economically viable industrial bio-technology solutions. Using industrial biotechnology we produce special chemical materials with higher performance or at lower cost than is possible with chemical methods. Some of our materials cannot be produced through chemical processes.
Cathay currently owns two production sites and one R&D center in China. The R&D center is located in the Shanghai Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park. The two production sites are located in Jinxiang (Province of Shandong) and Wusu (Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region).
