Our goal is to expand the portfolio of waste streams that can be used in our biotechnology. We plan to implement a technology for brewery malt waste upcycling.
Hydal PHA production requires several steps: First, the bacteria are cultured and tested in the laboratory. When multiplicated into a big enough population, they are mixed in a cultivation tank with waste cooking oil. Under specific conditions, the bacteria produce PHA inside their cells consuming WCO. C. necator can fill up to 80 % of its dry weight with PHA polymer. The polymer is then isolated, purified and ready for postprocessing specific for each of our applications.
