This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Lactic Acid production from lactose using a fermentation process. The process examined is a hypothetical route. In this process, a lactose solution is used as raw material, being fermented and producing Lactic Acid. Product purification is accomplished in ion exchange resins and concentration is accomplished by reverse osmosis and evaporation. A 50 wt% Lactic Acid solution in water is generated as final product.
This report, LA E31A, is a best-in-class examination of Lactic Acid production, providing an in-depth, comprehensive techno-economic analysis of the production technology examined, including:
- Process Description: raw materials and utilities consumption, products generation, labor requirements, list of equipment, characterization of site infrastructure, process flow diagram (PFD).
- Capital Cost Analysis: costs of plant construction, working capital, owners' costs, commissioning, start-up and contingency.
- Operating Cost Analysis: variable costs, fixed costs (salary, benefits & maintenance) and corporate overhead costs.
- And much more . . .
