Founded in 1834 in Switzerland, Sulzer is an international company present in more than 150 countries and specialized in pumps and maintenance for rotating equipment in the oil and gas, petrochemicals, energy, water industries as well as separation, reaction and mixing technologies applied in polymer industries. Sulzer provides not only key process equipment, but also complete systems which include pilot testing, process scale up, engineering, process know-how and application expertise. Since the 90s Sulzer polymer reaction and static devolatilization technologies are implemented in large scale polystyrene production processes. Over a decade ago, supporting the development of biopolymers in durable applications, Sulzer has developed a high-performance purification technology for lactide based on crystallization, which paved the way to further development in polymerization and processing of polylactic acid polymers, making them suitable for both durable applications and biodegradable products. Between 2007 and today, Sulzer PLA technology went from bench to industrial scale.
