Our Processes

Lactic Acid

Our proprietary gypsum-free process is based on a naturally selected and developed non-GMO bacteria that outperforms natural producers by yield, rate and titer. Our process is designed with robust industrial conditions in mind: Non-sterile, pH-shock tolerant, fast growing, low-cost media, high-temperature, repeated batch fermentations feed the Uhde-Lactic Acid downstream process.

Our patented process takes care of biomass and proteins, color bodies, residual sugars and ions. We apply the signature technology of the Simulated-Moving-Bed Chromatography, a principle widely used and scaled-up in the sugar industry. Based on this know-how we can produce technical-, food- and polymer-grade quality Lactic Acid for the industry.

Gypsum-free with a fertilizer co-product that readily sells as Ammoniumsulfate Solution or can be blended or enhanced with Urea, Nitrates and/or Phosphates to create Solutions, Crystal or Granular Fertilizer of various specification.

On the path towards Poly Lactic Acid (PLA), we have developed an integrated „Sugar-to-Lactic Acid-to-Lactide-to-Poly Lactic Acid“ technology together with our sister company Uhde-Inventa-Fischer in Berlin, Germany.

Succinic Acid

Based on Myriant Corporations non-transgenic GMO bacteria for the production of Succinic Acid, we have modified our proprietary Lactic Acid Process. With robust industrial conditions in mind thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions has developed unique knowledge in large scale E. coli fermentations of 400m³ size and designed a specific Ammonium-Bicarbonate column to provide continuous Base Solution for the cultivation.

Our patented downstream process takes care of biomass and proteins, color bodies, residual sugars and ions the signature technology of the Simulated-Moving-Bed Chromatography, a principle widely used and scaled-up in the sugar industry. Based on this know-how we can produce technical-, industrial-, food-, pharma- and polymer-grade quality Succinic Acid for the industry.

thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions has profound knowledge around the art of crystallizing Succinic Acid. Our process features a fertilizer co-product that readily sells as Ammoniumsulfate Solution or can be blended or enhanced with Urea, Nitrates and/or Phosphates to create Solutions, Crystal or Granular Fertilizer of various specification.
