The economic importance of recovery and regeneration of alternative energy and carbon sources has evolved into an ever-growing global challenge in the recent decades. Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) could be a forward-looking alternative to petrochemical-based plastics since they are biobased, biodegradable, biocompatible, and derived from renewable resources1,2,3,4. PHAs are synthesized by more than 300 different microorganisms as storage of carbon and energy, if an excess of carbon source is… CONTINUE READING
