Scientists from Wageningen University & Research, in association with oil and gas company Total, have developed a new process for producing organic acids via a biotechnological method. The discovery of the Monascus ruber micro-organism proved to be the crucial step in the new process. The fungus is extremely suitable for producing organic acids in large-scale industrial fermentation processes. Moreover, the polylactic acids which result from the process are bio-degradable and have a range of interesting new properties.
