The hottest polylactic acid production capacity in

In 2020, the capacity of polylactic acid in Asia will account for half of the world

the National Innovation Agency of Thailand and Germany have developed ultra-fine spherical (sheet) copper powder. Nova Institute GmbH recently said in an analysis report that by 2020, the capacity of bio based polylactic acid (PLA) resin in Asia will exceed that in North America, ranking first in the world. It is estimated that the global PLA capacity will rise from 182000 tons in 2011 to 721000 tons in 2020, while the capacity in Asia is expected to be close to half, more than 350000 tons. North America is the world's largest producer of PLA, accounting for 2/3 of the world's total output, with more than 120000 tons. It is expected to increase to about 200000 tons by 2020

the governments of Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and other Asian countries have introduced policies to support the development of various types of bio based materials, and Asia has a large number of agricultural raw materials, which have become the driving force of PLA. However, the demand for PLA in the local market in Asia is still not high, which also means that most of the new capacity in the region will be used for export

Thailand is expected to become a new bioplastics center. PTT chemical Public Co. Ltd., the largest plastic manufacturer in Thailand, bought 50% of the shares of NatureWorks LLC, an American PLA giant, last year. In addition, the Thai government has invested huge amounts of research funds in the field of bioplastics since 2008. At present, NatureWorks has 85% of the global PLA production. Even if other enterprises carry out global expansion, the proportion of NatureWorks in the global total production capacity is still likely to reach more than 50% by 2020

due to the poor quality of lactic acid raw materials by Chinese enterprises, the PL in China increased by 10% compared with the same period in 2017 (2) 1%; It is estimated that the net profit attributable to the parent company after deducting extraordinary profits and losses is 7.5 million yuan (1.3 million yuan), and the output of a resin is "significantly reduced" in the year of 200 and reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Affected by this, China's PLA imports increased from about 1200 tons in 2007 to 4000 tons last year
