Problem Addressed

Existing methods of producing lactic acid by fermentation are faced with several limitations. The current method for commercial production uses sugar as a feedstock, and therefore suffers from high raw material cost. Alternative methods that make use of organic waste have been explored, but these methods often suffer from high production overheads associated with the need to sterilize the feedstock to prevent contamination. This invention describes a novel method of lactic acid production from organic waste that addresses these problems.
