Polyhydroxyalkanoates from Palm Oil: Biodegradable Plastics by Kumar Sudesh

By Kumar Sudesh

The environmental difficulties because of petroleum-based plastic and plastic waste have ended in an expanding call for for biobased and biodegradable plastics, comparable to polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs). those polyesters are synthesized from carbon assets, e.g. sugar and plant oils, via a number of micro organism. This ebook highlights the opportunity of plant oils, particularly palm oil, as a feedstock for PHA creation. additionally, new PHA functions are mentioned and the sustainability of PHA construction from plant oils is significantly examined.
