Lactic acid is an important organic acid and widely applied in food, beverage,
brewing, spice, pharmaceutical, leather, cigarette, chemical, printing & dyeing and other
industries. In China, with the continuous expansion of application fields and the increase
in consumption of lactic acid and its derivatives, the demand volume for lactic acid also
continuously rises. Beer, which uses lactic acid as the PH regulator, rapidly develops in
particular. Moreover, the demand volume of food industry for lactic acid also increasingly

The United States, Western Europe, Japan, China, etc. are major lactic acid producing
regions globally, and nearly 80% of manufacturers adopt the fermentation method in
production. The production capacity of global lactic acid is mainly concentrated in North
America, Asia and Europe. Asia is the region with the largest output of lactic acid
globally, accounting for about 40% of the global output, while North America is the region
with the largest consumption worldwide, accounting for over 40% of the total global
consumption. Lactic acid possesses wide applications and important usages in many fields.
In recent years, with the increasing insufficiency of resources and concerns about
environmental protection, biodegradable polylactic acid (PLA) synthesized with the lactic
acid as raw materials draws extensive attention of the world’s scientific researchers,
which provides broad prospects for the research, production and development of the green
platform chemical lactic acid.

In China’s lactic acid industry
[http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ch6s3g/research_report ], a few enterprises
such as Anhui COFCO & Galactic Lactic Acid Co., Ltd., Henan Jindan Lactic Acid Tech Co.,
Ltd. and Hebei Xinhua Limited Company possess tens of thousands of tons of production
capacity. Scales of most manufactures are relatively small, with the annual production
capacity varying from hundreds of tons to thousands of tons. Many enterprises in China
announce plans of proposed projects, and design scales of many projects are very large.
