Lactide is a lactone cyclic di-ester, derived from lactic acid, and has three stereoisomers (L,L-Lactide; D,D-Lactide; and D,L-Lactide). All forms are colorless or white solids, solubles in chloroform and methanol, and slightly soluble in benzene. Upon contact with water, it is hydrolysed to lactic acid.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Lactide production costs. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2023).
