Lab validation continues in Q1/Q2 of 2021

We are testing a new biobased European feedstock with our patented enrichment technology with the aim to yield >70% (g/g) of L-lactic acid on carbohydrate fed.

In parallel we are running a downstream processing base case process to obtain high purity L-lactic acid in water as a 1st platform product. One our purification steps is a carbon treatment to remove organic impurities.

We highly appreciate the financial support of the Dutch Research Council (NWO) through the take off 1 grant – to support our work in this technical feasibility study. Also, we thank Delft University of Technology for facilitating us.
