Optipure® – D Lactic Acid

Plaxica's Optipure® technology is a robust, scalable chemical process which produces high value, polymer grade D lactic acid or L & D acids from any lactic feedstocks. These lactic acid species are suitable for processing into high performance polylactic acid polymers with high value end uses including the oil & gas industry and durable consumer goods.

Xylex™ – Lignin Free Sugars

Plaxica's Xylex™ technology produces clean sugars from industrial by-product streams. Xylex™ can simultaneously hydrolyse hemicelluloses and remove lignin and organic acids to produce sugar pre-cursors for high value products such as xylitol. Our technology is scalable, robust and low cost. Our feedstock of choice is a co-product stream from the dissolving pulp industry.”

Versalac® – Low Cost Lactic Acid

Plaxica’s Versalac® technology delivers a step change in the cost of lactic acid. Versalac® is a high performance chemical route to lactic acid which, unlike fermentation, is unaffected by impurities in the feedstock. Versalac® is closed loop – all reagents are recovered and the process has the lowest variable cost of any available lactic acid technology.
