Intratec Discloses Costs of Lactic Acid Production From Raw Sugar

New report details capital investment and operating costs of a Lactic Acid Plant

Intratec Solutions LLC, leading provider of chemicals and utilities pricing data and production cost reports, is pleased to announce a new report examining the costs of production of Lactic Acid.

The report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Lactic Acid production from raw sugar using a fermentation process. The process examined is similar to Corbion process. In this process, the fermentation broth is acidified in order to recover Lactic Acid and the product purification is realized by the use of a solvent. The process generates an 88 wt% Lactic Acid solution in water as final product. The study may be extended with optional analyses, such as Economic Analysis for Different Capacities, Process Flow Diagrams, Equipment List, and analyses providing capital & production costs in several countries.

The new study is now part of Intratec portfolio of more than 900 up-to-date, independent and cost-effective reports. Intratec studies can be purchased online at Intratec website, via credit cards.
