Biovalorization of Marine Raw Rest Materials into Polyhydroxyalkanoate-Based Products

Project duration: 2017 - 2019

In the project, unutilized rest raw materials from Norway’s fishing industry will be used as a feedstock to produce bacterial polymers, called  polyhydroxyalkanoates. These polymers can be used in bioplastic production, but can also serve as a source of valuable monomers. Several fermentation strategies will be employed to convert various different types of marine raw rest materials into biopolymers, which will then be assessed for use as environmentally-friendly bioplastics and/or as a source for high-value monomers.
