Bioplastics webinar - Bad plastics, good plastics: Can PHA from wastewater reverse the trend ?


INCOVER invited experts in the area of bio-plastics to critically examine the market available for PHAs produced from wastewater in a webinar organized by ICLEI on 18th September 2018 from 17:00-18:00 [CEST].

Over twenty experts joined the discussion which included presentations by project experts: Bruno Ferreira (BIOTREND), Joana Fradinho (IBET), and Enrica Uggetti (UPC). The presentations gave an overview of past and present PHA production from pure and mixed cultures, as well as a more specific outline of the PHA produced by the INCOVER treatment systems.  This was followed by a discussion round which tackled some questions including: existing uses and markets for PHAs produced from wastewater treatment plants, triggers for the uptake of wastewater-based PHAs by the market, and the sustainability and affordability of the process.
