One of the main limitations in bacterial polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) production with mixed cultures is the fact that primarily polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) homopolymers are generated from acetate as the main carbon source, which is brittle and quite fragile. The incorporation of different 3-hydroxyalkanoate (HA) components into the polymers requires the addition of additional carbon sources, leading to extra costs and complexity. In this study, the production of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate (3HB)-co-3… CONTINUE READING
