PHA (Poly-Hydroxy-Alkanoates or polyhydroxy fatty acids) is a family of biobased polyesters. As in many mammals, including humans, that hold energy reserves in the form of body fat there are also bacteria that hold intracellular reserves of polyhydroxy alkanoates. Here the micro-organisms store a particularly high level of energy reserves (up to 80 % of their own body weight) for when their sources of nutrition become scarce. Examples of such Polyhydroxyalkanoates are PHB, PHV, PHBV, PHBH, and many more. That’s why we speak about the PHA platform.
This PHA-platform is made up of a large variety of bioplastics raw materials made from many different renewable resources. Depending on the type of PHA, they can be used for applications in films and rigid packaging, biomedical applications, automotive, consumer electronics, appliances, toys, glues, adhesives, paints, coatings, fibres for woven and non-woven and PHA products inks. So PHAs cover a broad range of properties and applications.
That’s why bioplastics MAGAZINE in cooperation with GO!PHA is now organizing the 3rd PHA-platform World Congress on 10+11 October in the USA. This congress will continue the great success of the first two PHA platform World Congresses in Germany and the PHA-days at the Bioplastics Business Breakfast @ K'2019 and K'2021.
The congress will address the progress, challenges and market opportunities for the formation of this new polymer platform in the world. Every step in the value chain will be addressed. Raw materials, polymer manufacturing, compounding, polymer processing, applications, opportunities and end-of-life options will be discussed by parties active in each of these areas. Progress in underlying technology challenges will also beaddressed.
The event will most probably be again a hybrid event.
In addition it is planned to record all presentations and them available as "video-on-demand"
The "call for papers" is open. Please send your proposal, preferably with an abstract (1000 characters max) to mtbplstcsmgzncm or phwrldcngrssgphrg
