Deliverable 2.2 - 1st report on PHA production: first report on pilot-scale process for PHA production

Abstract

The deliverable 2.2 “1st report on pilot-scale process for PHA production” is the result of activities undertaken in Task 2.2. Its objectives consist of:

  • Optimizing the biological process for production of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA);
  • Produce the PHA to be extracted in Task 2.3 and to be delivered to WP3 partners, which will be in charge for properties characterization and evaluation of targeted applications.

At this stage (month 15th), this deliverable reports the operation of the 3-stage process for the PHA production at pilot-scale from both partners (NOVAID and UNIRM) as well as the production of polymer accomplished so far.
