organized by July 6+7, 2021: Cologne, Germany and Jan Ravenstijn Diamond Sponsor Gold Sponsor Silver Sponsor Supported by Media Partner Platinum Sponsor Bronze Sponsor …from Embryonic to Early Growth PHA (Poly-Hydroxy-Alkanoates or polyhydroxy fatty acids) is a family of biobased polyesters. As in many mammals, including humans, that hold energy reserves in the form of body fat there are also bacteria that hold intracellular reserves of polyhydroxy alkanoates. Here the microorganisms store a particularly high level of energy reserves (up to 80% of their own body weight) for when their sources of nutrition become scarce. Examples for such Polyhydroxyalkanoates are PHB, PHV, PHBV, PHBH and many more. That’s why we speak about the PHA platform. This PHA-platform is made up of a large variety of bioplastics raw materials made from many different renewable resources. Depending on the type of PHA, they can be used for applications in films and rigid packaging, biomedical applications, automotive, consumer electronics, appliances, toys, glues, adhesives, paints, coatings, fibers for woven and non-woven andPHA products inks. So PHAs cover a broad range of properties and applications. That’s why bioplastics MAGAZINE and Jan Ravenstijn are now organizing the 2 nd PHA-platform World Congress on 30-31 March 2021 (new date) in Cologne / Germany. This congress continues the great success of the 1 st PHA platform World Congress and the PHA-day at the Bioplastics Business Breakfast @ K 2019. We will again offer a special “Basics”-Workshop in the day before (March 29) - if there are sufficient registrations... To shorten the time until then, we hosted a successful 7 hour webinar on 2 Sept. 2020. The congress will address the progress, challenges and market opportunities for the formation of this new polymer platform in the world. Every step in the value chain will be addressed. Raw materials, polymer manufacturing, compounding, polymer processing, applications, opportunities and end-of-life options will be discussed by parties active in each of these areas. Progress in underlying technology challenges will also be addressed. bioplastics MAGAZINE [01/21] Vol. 16 13
