R.K. PATHAK , NITIN PEREIRA1 AND AHMAD ASHFAQ

Abstract

Lactic acid is a highly versatile chemical. It is produced by synthetic or biochemical route in batch, fed batch or continuous process. Due to presence of number of impurities and requirement of number of downstream separation process the production of lactic acid is not economical. Chemical route generate racemic mixture of acid while fermentative route produces lot of waste disposal problems. Present paper is an attempt to analyze various processes for production of lactic acid their occurrence and uses.
