Bio-on and Greenergy team up for PHA plant in the UK from glycerol

In Italy, Bio-on and Greenergy International Limited have signed an agreement to begin a technical collaboration, the first in the United Kingdom, to look at the possibility of producing PHAs bioplastic from Glycerol, a biodiesel production co-product. The two companies will work together to establish the feasibility of building in the United Kingdom a 5,000 ton per year plant expandable to 10 thousand tons per year. Greenergy’s technical collaboration with Bio-on will investigate the potential to manufacture PHAs biopolymers from glycerol on an industrial scale in the UK. Source: Biofuels Digest 16/3/2017
