Commercially viable biobased and biodegradable plastic!
BluCon Biotech GmbH provides a unique technology by which L-lactic acid can be produced at lowest possible production costs. This will enable the bioplastic PLA (poly lactic acid) to become commercially competitive to fossil fuel based plastics and convert millions of tons of nondegradable plastic waste into biodegradable, environmentally friendly products. Avoiding the use of sugars and therefore circumventing the competition with food supplies BluCon’s unique technology uses residues of the paper recycling and agricultural industries. This innovative fermentation process directly converts these raw materials into L-lactic acid. Besides developing BluCon technology to commercial stage, BluCon Biotech GmbH serves as a platform to acquire and develop further technologies in the field of applied biotechnology.
