Highly Cost-Effective Single Step Process for Production of Lactide Monomer

Technology Area: Materials & Chemical

Commercial Maturity: Prototype

Abstract: Polymer grade lactide has been commercially produced by 2-step prepolymer process, requiring significant enantiopurity loss and high burden of purifications. KRICT offers a new single step process to produce it over novel catalysts, overcoming these disadvantages and enabling PLA (Polylactic acid) production companies to minimize PLA production costs.
