Becoming truly circular

At Corbion, most by-products of the lactic acid process are reused or recycled.

But in order to be truly circular, Corbion has explored the development of a new lactic acid production process. In this process nearly all chemicals are recycled, resource efficiency is optimized and by-products are eliminated. Over the past decade, we have scaled-up this process from the lab to pilot scale to demonstration scale, giving us confidence that this process will prove viable on an industrial scale.
