Yesterday the 6th of June the webinar about PHA took place. More than 35 participants discussed and shared knowledge on the PHA topic.
In the Interreg North-West Europe WOW! project we have shown that the recovery of carbon based elements from sewage results in valuable products like PHA bioplastic. What if we could also use industrial streams for producing PHA? Imagine how much conventional plastics we could replace with this. Sounds like good news! In part two of WOW! we have tested residual streams from different food processing industries on lab scale and pilot scale. After extraction, the PHA is ready for the 3D printing. The question still is if the material is suitable for printing? And something else, how circular is the PHA processing? During the EU Green Week 2023 we organised a webinar which was all about our results.
