Life cycle assessment (LCA) PHA Biodegradable plastic – EMPHATI
Within the EMPHATI project, Ecoras is working as a project partner, among other things, to develop a comprehensive life cycle assessment (LCA) of PHA production routes and product applications.
More about PHA & EMHATI
Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are a special group of bacterially produced thermoplastic biopolymers. The goal of the cross-border project EMPHATI is therefore the development of new sustainable and environmentally friendly products based on PHA/PHA blends with natural fibers for selected applications in injection moulding and 3D printing in the participating production companies. An important aspect is the formation of a cross-border cluster along the PHA value chain that connects actors and enables knowledge transfer. An open section should allow for feasibility and pilot studies.
Ecoras is currently conducting research into the impact (environmental benefit) of an acrylic product that consists largely of recycled content. Read more »
