Abstract Polylactic acid (PLA) is produced from renewable raw materials
originating from crops such as corn and sugar cane. Some inherent
properties of PLA have limited its use in several applications. Within
the FOAMEX project, the participants hope to take the production of
PLA based extrusion foams to a next level. There are few examples of
extrusion foaming of PLA on an industrial scale. For a commercial
breakthrough, improvements are needed with respect to both the
material (PLA) and to the extrusion foaming process itself (equipment,
