Industrial and commercial SCALE-up of Bio-on technology for the production of PHA polymers from sugar industries waste, co- and by-products (SCALEPHA)
Date du début: 1 mai 2015, Date de fin: 31 oct. 2015 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The objective of the SCALEPHA Project is to contribute to the protection and sustainable management of natural resources and ecosystems through a sustainable supply and use of raw materials in the industrial production of 100% biodegradable bio-plastic, in order to meet the needs of a growing global population within the sustainable limits of the planet's natural resources and eco-systems.SCALEPHA activities will contribute to increasing European competitiveness, raw materials security and improving well-being, whilst assuring environmental integrity, resilience through an innovative integrated technology: Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHAs).European Factories of the Future will have to be SMART (high performance, reconfigurable, adaptive and evolving factories based on new technologies) and GREEN (reduced ecological footprint through a more efficient use, at factory level, of material and energy resources): SCALEPHA project will demonstrate that Biotechnologies, such PHAs production, are the strategic technologies needed to keep the European Manufacturing leading edge.Side Objectives:- penetrate significantly the existing bioplastic market through PHAs (in particular Biomedical, Food Packaging and Design sectors); - diffusion and uptake of PHA innovation on a broad scale, maximising its economic and environmental benefits;- create or enlarge new markets for related PHAs products providing opportunities for growth and jobs at Local, National and European levels.- deploy a key environmental product obtained with smarter and greener processes addressing the challenge of resource scarcity, water and soil pollution.
