2-Hydroxypropanoic Acid Production Cost Analysis 2019

2-Hydroxypropanoic acid, commonly known as lactic acid, belonging to the family of carboxylic acids, is a clear odourless water-soluble liquid, which is found in sour milk and in many fruits. It is an organic compound, which is hygroscopic in nature. It is basically a fermentation product of lactose (milk sugar) and is used as a catalyst in various chemical processes. It is used chiefly in dyeing and textile printing as well as a flavouring agent in food and  medicines.
