Polyhydroxyalkanoates: The Exciting Journey to Develop Circular Bioeconomy Applications

Seminar of prof. Josè Maria Lagaron, Spanish Council for Scientific Research, Spain. This presentation will gather the recent efforts carried out within our research group to characterise and develop applications for polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), using both commercial grades, and experimental materials developed within several EU projects using the technology of Mixed Microbial Cultures (MMC). The talk will provide first our current understanding of the structure-properties-processing relationship in PHA, and the existing challenges for their industrial implementation, then it will follow up with the technological strategies undertaking by our team to provide solutions, using the unique properties of PHA, to overcome existing hurdles in areas such as food packaging, adhesives, coatings and filtration. https://www.chem.uniroma1.it/notizie/polyhydroxyalkanoates-the-exciting-journey-to-develop-circular-bioeconomy-applications-seminario-di
