DSM invests in Bioprocess Control AB to optimize biogas processes

DSM Venturing, the corporate venturing unit of Royal DSM N.V., announced that it has made an equity investment in Bioprocess Control AB. In addition to the investment, a strategic cooperation agreement has been signed which will enable DSM and Bioprocess Control AB to leverage their complementary activities in the area of biogas.
