Biocor To Handle Post-Consumer PLA

Biocor LLC, Concord, Calif., has been established to buy and process post-consumer polylactic acid
(PLA) packaging to convert it using a closed-loop process back into lactic acid feedstock for
various end-use markets.

Biocor, headed by Executive Director Mike Centers, will acquire the packaging from recyclers.
The company also plans to collaborate on pilot PLA recycling projects; and work with government
agencies as well as non-government, consumer and recycling groups.
