3rd PHA platform World Congress 2023

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 be addressed.

In addition it is planned to record all presentations and  them available as "video-on-demand".


GO!PHA also offer a Masterclass on the afternoon of October 09, 2023. This online masterclass can be booked for EUR 350 or USD 400. Details can be found here.

The Greener Manufacturing Show

On October 11 and 12, 2023, partly overlapping with the 3rd PHA World Congress , THE GREENER MANUFACTURING SHOW and PLASTIC WASTE FREE WORLD North America (October 11-12, 2023, Atlanta, Georgia) offers a perfect opportunity to “kill two birds with one stone”…

The THE GREENER MANUFACTURING SHOW and PLASTIC WASTE FREE WORLD is being held at  the Cobb Galleria Centre, Two Galleria Parkway, Atlanta, Georgia. Even a one-day visit to the Greener Manufacturing Show is worth to extend your stay in Atlanta.

 And  even if you can only participate in person for one of the two days of the 3rd PHA World Congress, you'll benefit from the whole package. The hybrid conference will be broadcasted via ZOOM and recorded. As you know, we will offer a video-on-demand playlist until the end of this year for ALL attendees. Thus, nobody needs to miss a single presentation. On October 10, attendees can meet and network with all speakers and attendees at the venue and via the WHOVA app and platform, networking with all (on-site and onlines) attendees is possible for the next 3 months too.

Registered on-site attendees will benefit from a free Conference & Expo ticket to The Greener Manufacturing Show, co-located with Plastic Waste Free World, North America 2023.
