  • Polylactic acid (PLA) is a biodegradable polymer derived from lactic acid.
  • Polylactic acid exhibits many properties that are equivalent to or better than many petroleum-based plastics, which makes it suitable for a variety of applications.
  • PLA is resistant to moisture and grease.
  • Polylactic acid is not a new material. It has been around for decades.
  • Polylactic acid (a.k.a. poly-lactide) is a polymer with a future.
  • Polylactic Acid (PLA), an affordable, recyclable, innovative packaging material made from renewable resources.
  • The basic constitutional unit of PLA is Lactic Acid, which can be manufacture by carbohydrates fermentationor chemical synthesis, although fermentation process predominates.
  • Chemical synthesisroute is currently used to produce large scale quantities of racemiclactic acid; however, it is economically unviable.
  • Fermentation processcan be divided according the type of bacteria in the process.
  • Poly(L-lactic acid) (PLA)-degrading Amycolatopsis sp. strains K104-1 and K104-2 were isolated by screening 300 soil samples for the ability to form
    clear zones on the PLA-emulsified mineral agar plates.
  • A low-molecular-weight poly(lactic acid) was synthesized through the condensation reaction of L-lactic acid.
  • There are two main methods to synthetizing PLA, ring-opening polymerization of lactide and condensation polymerization of lactic acid.
  • Injections of PLA are performed in the median-deep layer of the dermis, where the material stimulates fibroblast multiplication and collagen production.
  • Initial uses of PLA were limited to biomedical applications such as sutures3 and drug delivery systems due to availability and cost of manufacture.
  • PLA polymer used for packaging and fiber applications. It is important that PLA is used broadly in textile applications for several reasons.
  • Biodegradable polymeric blends are expected to be widely used by industry due to their environmental friendliness and comparable mechanical
    and thermal properties.
  • PLA among its copolymers with glycolic acids (PLGA) are widely used in micro- and nanoparticulate drug delivery systems because of their biocompatibility and biodegradation properties.
  • Amorphous poly (DL-lactic
    acid)and poly (lactic acid-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) polymers have been used to fabricate porous scaffolds for tissue engineering applications via a supercritical foaming technique.
  • Post consumer PLA can be separated from Polyethylene tetraphthalate(PET) using near IR technology.
  • A technology is developed for PLA chemical recycling.
