3rd Edition Lactic Acid & Polylactic Acid Benchmarking Report Comes Out

Lactic acid (LA) is one of the most important multifunctional organic acids. Its application fields have been expanding in recent years; more and more high-quality L-lactic acid is needed. In 2011, its total capacity in China reaches 385,000t/a and its output comes to 165,500 tonnes. What is the detailed production situation of lactic acid in the past two years?

Corn and glucose are the two major raw materials for domestic LA production. Being an important production country on corn and glucose, China's supply of the two raw materials for LA production is abundant by now. In 2011, the output of corn and glucose is 184,000,000 tonnes and 1,900,000 tonnes respectively in China. What is the latest information of the two kinds of raw materials in China?

Compared with ordinary plastic, polylactic acid (PLA) is featured by being environmentally friendly and biological degradation, which is attracting more and more attention both at home and abroad. Though China has achieved great progress in the development of PLA in the past ten years, its PLA industry still stays at the initial stage. Domestic PLA production still lags behind some developed countries such as the US. In 2011, there are six active PLA producers in China. The total capacity is 21,500t/a and the output can reach 7,300 tonnes. What are the details of PLA production in China in the past two years?
