One year after the launch of the project, the 16 European partners gathered online to review their work and plan the next activities of the project.
Launched in September 2020, the NENU2PHAR project is setting-up an innovative European value chain of bio-plastic products from microalgae and bacteria, these sustainable and renewable resources will provide plastic products an acceptable end of life through of composting, recycling or re-using.
For about 3 years, the project will work on developing an original production route of PHA (Polyhydroxyalkanoate), a family of biobased polymers and biodegradable plastics. 8 PHA-based high volume consumer products, that will be either used for packaging, agricultural or medical applications, will be developed and benchmarked to their fossil-based counterparts.
Over two days in September, the remote event was the opportunity for the partners to share their recent outcomes with great progress on the development of the bio-based plastic material.
NENU2PHAR’s partners are pleased to share key outcomes from their first year of work.
