Bioplastics

Using renewable resources to produce PLA

Lactic acid, which is produced by fermenting sugar (from beet or cane) or starch (from maize or wheat), is the raw material used for producing polylactic acid (PLA).

Nearly 10 years of research in the production and application of these bioplastics has enriched our expertise and technological know-how in the field. A major step forward in pursuing this path and considering various industrial options.
