The challenges for a sustainable value chain: from an industrial and social perspective
Led by the two partners IPC and LOMARTOV, NENU2PHAR project organises its first onsite event to exchange about the challenges of PHA value chain. It will take place on 4th and 5th of April in Alençon in the premises of IPC Innovation Plasturgie Composites, technical centre specialised in innovative materials.
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.
