PLA is made from the monomer Lactide, which in turn is made from lactic acid, Corbion’s core product. Total-Corbion is modifying the existing Lactide plant in Rayong to make the full range of PLA grade polymers. Secondly a PLA polymerization plant is being added to the production train so Total-Corbion can also supply PLA polymers to the market by 2018. The capacity of the PLA polymerization is 75.000 Mton per year. Finally Total-Corbion also install a PLA development plant with a capacity of 1.000 Ton per year for process optimization and product development. This development plant will be operational in 2017.

 

In total Total-Corbion invests about $100 million, on top of earlier investments in the Lactide plant, to make Thailand the second producer in the World of PLA biopolymers.
