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. Plaxica’s Optipure technology gives the option to produce polymer-grade D lactic acid using a low cost proven technology. D lactic acid transforms the performance of PLA biopolymers.
Versalac is proven across a wide range of sugar-based feedstocks from forestry, agricultural and industrial by-products. Our technology to transform such varied feedstocks into valuable lactic acid at very low cost maximises revenue potential for our partners.
Lactic acid is a high value, flexible bio-based chemical with a large and growing market. It can be used as an intermediate for many high volume applications including in aerospace, automotive, oil and gas and the food industry. Global demand for lactic acid is growing strongly.
