What is PLA Material?

- Jul 10, 2019-

Polylactic acid (PLA) is a novel biobased and renewable biodegradable material made from starch raw materials proposed by renewable plant resources such as corn and cassava.

The starch raw material is obtained by saccharification to obtain glucose, and then glucose and a certain strain are fermented to produce high-purity lactic acid, and then a certain molecular weight polylactic acid is synthesized by chemical synthesis.

It has good biodegradability. After use, it can be completely degraded by microorganisms in nature under certain conditions, and finally produces carbon dioxide and water without polluting the environment, which is very beneficial for protecting the environment.
