Lactic Acid
Lactic Acid
2-Hydroxypropanoic Acid
Lactic Acid (a.k.a. 2-Hydroxypropanoic Acid) is an organic alpha hydroxy acid that can be found as D, L or racemic isomers (chiral molecule). Lactic acid appears as colorless to yellow odorless liquid and can be found naturally in almost every single living organism, since it is the product of anaerobic metabolism of sugar. It plays an important role on a series of biochemical processes.

Lactic Acid from Glucose (Fermentation pH 6 and Acidification)

This study provides the economics of Lactic Acid production from glucose syrup using a fermentation process in the United States. This process is similar to Corbion process, in which Lactic Acid is recovered by acidification and purified by the use of a solvent.

Details: 100 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   109 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report LA E11A target a 100 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Lactic Acid from Glucose (Fermentation pH 6 and Ultrafiltration)

This report provides a feasibility study of Lactic Acid production from glucose syrup in the United States using a fermentation process. This process is similar to Cargill process. In this case, Lactic Acid recovery is performed by trialkylamine solvent extraction in the presence of carbon dioxide.

The cost analyses presented in the report LA E13A target a 100 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Lactic Acid from Glucose (Acid Fermentation and Ultrafiltration)

This study provides a techno-economic analysis of Lactic Acid production from glucose syrup in the United States using a low pH fermentation process. In this process, glucose is directly converted to lactic acid.

Details: 110 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report LA E14A target a 110 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Lactic Acid from Glucose (Acid Fermentation and Nanofiltration)

This report presents the economics of Lactic Acid production from glucose syrup using a speculative, continuous, low pH, fermentation process in the United States. In this process, Lactic Acid is recovered from the fermentation broth through microfiltration and nanofiltration steps, generating an 80 wt% Technical Grade Lactic Acid, with 95 wt% purity.

Lactic Acid from Raw Sugar (Fermentation pH 6 and Ultrafiltration)

This report provides a feasibility study of Lactic Acid production from raw sugar in Germany using a fermentation process. This process is similar to Cargill process. Raw sugar is initially hydrolyzed into glucose and fructose (invert sugars), which are fermented to Lactic Acid. In this case, Lactic Acid recovery is performed by trialkylamine solvent extraction in the presence of carbon dioxide.
