Biodegradable and home compostable materials

Microbial bio-polyesters produced from agricultural and agro-food residues

Polyhydroxy(butyrate-co-valerate), P(HB-co-HV) produced from (non-food) feedstocks, using eco-efficient up-scaled conversion process, would permit to endow the packaging industry with “bio-benign” (no risk of microplastics pollution) biodegradable and home compostable materials.

These biopolymers are completely biodegredable to water and carbon dioxide at room temperature and therefore considered amongt the ost promising alternatives of oil-based synthetic polymers to tackle current negative externalities of our plastic packaging.

More information will be published as the project progresses.
