Direvo successfully demonstrates production of lactic acid from cellulosic feedstocks [Registered]

The start-up Direvo, based in Germany, recently announced the successful completion of laboratory scale development of a fermentation process for low cost production of L-lactic acid, a part of its BluCon® technology platform. The technology platform enables one-step conversion of cellulosic feedstocks into valuable chemicals, for example lactic acid. The BluCon® platform is based on its patented, proprietary extremophilic anaerobic bacteria comprising consolidated bioprocessing of cellulosic feedstocks for production of biofuels and biobased chemicals. Consolidated bioprocessing is the conversion of lignocellulose into target products in a single step by microorganisms without additional enzymes. Proprietary microbes deployed in BluCon® technology are…
