Polyhydroxyalkanoate production by municipal waste activated sludge

Tackling scaling-up process challenges

More Info


Microbes are the gears that sustain all forms of life in planet Earth and are expected to become key players in the transition towards a more sustainable society. In this thesis, microbes from sewage sludge are used for the production of polyhydroxyalkanoates, biodegradable polymers that have the potential to replace
many of the petroleum-based plastics that are used nowadays.
