Procurement Resource Assessment of Polylactic Acid Production Process:
- Polylactic Acid Production from Melt-Phase Polymerization : The study offers a detailed cost analysis of Polylactic Acid production via Melt-Phase Polymerization. Glucose or dextrose gets fermented into lactic acid during the process, which is later oligomerised and depolymerised into lactide, which is a cyclic dimer of lactic acid. At last, the lactide produced is polymerised, finally resulting in polylactic acid.
Polylactic Acid (PLA), or polylactide (PLA), is a thermoplastic biopolymer polyester obtained by lactic acid’s condensation with water loss to produce the repeating units. Another method of preparing it is by ring-opening polymerization of lactide, the cyclic dimer of the basic repeating unit. It holds the second-highest consumption volume of bioplastics worldwide and can easily be obtained from renewable feedstocks like corn, sugarcane, and tapioca. Its characteristics are similar to polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), or polystyrene (PS), along with it being biodegradable. It also has properties like low thermal expansion, high tensile strength, and high heat resistance when annealed.
Polylactic acid’s global demand is rising due to its use in textile, agriculture, transport, and packaging. Compared to conventional plastics, plastics are witnessing growth as the low carbon emission-producing polylactic acid is more preferred among consumers. Furthermore, the increasing demand for flexible packaging as demand for snacks, packaged food, ready-to-eat meal, etc., is on the rise and is propelling the industry forward. The acid is also employed for manufacturing components used in the automotive sector, in the interior parts and hood under components. It reduces the carbon footprint due to its high bio content while offering properties such as impact resistance, dimensional stability, colourability, UV resistance, and high gloss. In the Textile sector, polylactic acid offers smooth and pleasant fabrics as PLA provides excellent moisture, breathability, durability, and durability, furthering the market’s expansion.
