Hydal PHA is suitable for high-added-value applications in biomedicine. We develop sustainable, safe, and effective wound dressings.

Biomedicine applicationsBiomedicinal products with Hydal PHAP3HB

The main properties of PHAs make them excellent candidates for biomedical applications – Hydal PHA is biodegradable, biocompatible and non-toxic to the skin, even when administered orally or intravenously. PHAs cause no irritation, inflammation or allergic reaction. 

PHAs are being tested as drug carriers and also in tissue engineering – for joint implants, medical devices and tissue reconstruction.  

We are developing sustainable and safe nanofibrous wound dressings based on Hydal PHA. Wound dressings are necessary for acute traumas like burns and surgical wounds, but also chronic wounds and ulcers. By electrospinning process, we can create PHAs nanofibers – a biocompatible and biodegradable scaffold for skin regeneration.  

Wound dressings are highly specific products, which cannot be reused or recycled. Thus, bio-based and biodegradable polymers are the most suitable materials for these single-use products considering the environmental footprint.

Drug Carriers

PHA polymers can be used to improve drug administration.

Tissue engineering

PHAs are suitable materials for stents, sutures, implants, and medical devices.

Wound dressings

PHAs can serve as biocompatible and biodegradable scaffold for skin regeneration.

Hydal Biotechnology

We produce high-quality PHA from waste cooking oil (WCO) through the unique Hydal biotechnology.

Biopolymer P3HB

P3HB is non-toxic, biocompatible and biodegradable. It is a circular material from waste.


PHAs cause no toxicity, irritation or allergic skin reaction. In addition, Hydal PHA is fully biodegradable.

Sustainable Packaging

We strive for zero-waste approach for our products and to further develop sustainable packaging.
