Stahl joins GO!PHA

Stahl (Waalwijk, the Netherlands), a leading provider of speciality coatings and treatments for flexible substrates, has joined the Global Organization for PHA (GO!PHA), a non-profit platform that advocates and advances the use of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs), a naturally occurring polymer that offers a lower-impact, biobased alternative to traditional fossil-based plastic feedstocks.

GO!PHA is a coalition of over 60 stakeholders ranging from producers and formulators to users as well as universities and research institutes. The members, all early adopters of PHAs, work together to increase understanding of this relatively new PHA technology and advance the science behind these renewable, compostable, and biodegradable materials. As a member of the network, Stahl will have the opportunity to join forces with the wider PHA value chain to help move PHAs beyond the testing phase and accelerate the potential application of the technology in the coatings market.

Paolo Bavaj (Chief Innovation and Development Officer at Stahl): “We see significant potential in PHAs, and we look forward to collaborating with like-minded stakeholders through the GO!PHA alliance to bring this important technology to life. We are currently testing potential PHA-based applications across our entire portfolio; by pioneering and embracing new, sustainable technologies, we are truly living our purpose, Touching lives, for a better world.”

Anindya Mukherjee (Executive Board Member at GO!PHA): “We warmly welcome Stahl as a new member to GO!PHA. Stahl's expertise in speciality coatings and treatments for flexible substrates will undoubtedly enrich our coalition's efforts to promote the use of PHAs, fostering innovation and sustainability within the coatings industry. Together, we look forward to advancing the adoption of PHAs and other renewable, compostable, and biodegradable materials!” AT
