Nenu2PHAr partners will develop, an original route to produce PHA (Polyhydroxyalkanoate) from sustainable and renewable resources: micro-algae biomass using CO2 as carbon source and processed by selected bacterial strains. PHA are a group of biopolymers recognised as attractive substitutes to fossil fuel-derived plastics in a wide range of applications. Indeed, they are renewable, biodegradable and bio-based polyesters.
Nenu2PHAr brings together at different stages of the value chain teams from 16 partners from 7 European countries. The project will be carried out over 42 months, from September 2020 to February 2024, with an overall budget of € 6.4M including € 5M funding from the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI-JU) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

💡 #Elixance, #Nenu2PHAr partner, is a company specialized in the elaboration and production of masterbatches and compounds. They just released an article on #Bioplastics Magazine, about the home compostable 3D printing filament, based on #PHA, developed in the project🌱.
🆕This week (30 May to 5 June 2022) is the " #EUGreenWeek" 🌱🌍
💡This year's edition ties in with the European Green Deal - the EU’s sustainable and transformative growth strategy for a resource-efficient and climate-neutral Europe by 2050 https://t.co/TkmlManLgt
