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 for 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, fibers for woven and non-woven andPHA products inks. So PHAs cover a broad range of properties and applications.

That’s why bioplastics MAGAZINE and Jan Ravenstijn are now organizing the 1st PHA-platform World Congress on 4-5 September 2018 in Cologne / Germany.

This 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.

Register now to secure your seat.

Workshop

In the afternoon  (13:00-17:00) of September 3rd, preceding the conference Jan Ravenstijn will hold a workshop on the basics of the PHA-platform. The agenda of the workshop can be found here. The cost of this workshop is 200 Euro.

Conferences by bioplastics MAGAZINE


This is the 1st PHA-platform World Congress by bioplastics MAGAZINE.

Before we have successfully organized the the 1st and 2nd PLA Bottle Conference (2007 and 2008), five PLA World Congresses as well as several Bioplastics Business Breakfasts (during Düsseldorf K-Show in 2010, 2013 and 2016). In 2015 and 2017 we held our first and second bio!PAC and bio!CAR conferences
