A slick solution for the oil industry
Our biobased solutions help the oil industry boost performance and reduce costs the natural way – from descaling and slow acid release to mud cleaning.
Biodegradable and with no bioaccumulation, our lactic acids help you reduce the growing cost of cleaning and disposal of waste streams – while reducing your carbon footprint.
Lactic acid in oil applications
We can develop lactic acid derivatives tailored to your specific needs across a wide range of applications. In fact, lactic acid is effective for applications including descaling, cleaning of cuttings, fracturing and desalination – as well as for the production of metal lactates (applied as active cross-linkers in drilling and fracking operations).
Lactic acid is an effective yet low-corrosive scale remover: Its performance exceeds glycolic, acetic, phosphoric and citric acid, while its salts are highly soluble in water.
How do our oil industry solutions benefit you?
- Good Scale remover
- High solubility of hard water salts
- Building block for cross-linkers
- Low toxicity
