New tailor-made PHB-based nanocomposites for high-performance applications produced from environmentally friendly production routes

Objectives:

The project aims to develop a new cost-competitive and environmentally friendly bionanocomposite in order to have a true alternative to engineering materials in two main sectors: household appliances, computers & telecommunications.

Description:

PHB has been produced by bacterial fermentation using, as a raw material, sugar hydrolysates extracted from agro-industrial sources such as wheat straw. The reduced cost of the wheat straw plus an optimized fermentation process with increased productivity has allowed for the production of PHB with a reduced cost.
The cost of the final PHB compound is estimated between 4 and 5.5 €/kg, which is in the range as other biopolymers nowadays on the market, and lower than commercial grades of PHB.

Project partners:

3 research centres, 1 University and 11 companies
