A gentler way to produce lactic acid

Lactic acid preserves food and is the basis of sustainable and biodegradable plastics. It is still mainly obtained via a bio- technology process which uses chemicals that have to be removed again later. HLS researchers have developed an alternative: using a membrane process, they isolate and purify lactic acid directly, sustainably and without additional chemicals.
