Bioplastic Waste Fermentation into Carboxylic Acids to Foster the Circular Economy

Project: PhD

Project Details


Plastic pollution in the environment is a growing worldwide problem. There is a plastic transition ongoing which includes an increase in the use of biodegradable plastic products. To foster a circular economy, such materials should be efficiently recycled. However, current plastics management strategies are, expect of a few cases, unable to handle biodegradable plastics sustainably. This project aims to convert biodegradable plastics into high-value intermediate chemicals through a carboxylate platform strategy. The experimental research can serve as the base to develop and implement biodegradable plastic recycling technologies.
