For a sustainable and European value chain of PHA-based materials for high-volume consumer products


What is

nenu2PHAr ?

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.
