There has been a growing attention on PDLA (poly D-lactic acid) since stereocomplex PLA, a kind of polymer alloy between PLLA and PDLA was known much thermally stable compared PLLA. Superior characteristics of stereocomplex PLA result in the elevated demand for D-lactic acid. Although many research works have been reported for L-lactic acid production especially food industry, however there are relatively few research works for D-lactic acid production since D-lactic acid cannot find any applications in food industry. Most imminent issue for D-lactic acid is the economic production process that requires low cost medium, efficient lactic acid producing microorganism and finally large scale-up design. In this review, current status of D-lactic acid production process will be summarized and discussed for the further improvement of D-lactic acid production process.
