Polyhydroxy Butyrate (PHB) Production Cost Report

Polyhydroxy butyrate (PHB) is a biodegradable polymer that is used as an alternative to typical petrochemical-based plastics. It is naturally synthesized by some bacteria as a means of storing carbon and energy. It is a thermoplastic polyester that belongs to the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) class. It has similar qualities to petroleum-based plastics, but it is biodegradable, renewable, and non-toxic, making it an appealing alternative to traditional plastics in a variety of applications.

It can be made from renewable resources such as maize starch, sugar cane, or vegetable oil and utilized in a wide range of products such as packaging materials, disposable items, and medical devices. The growing awareness of environmental concerns promotes the use of biodegradable materials further employing its use across various industries.

The market drivers for PHB (polyhydroxybutyrate) include several key factors. Firstly, the increasing demand for biodegradable materials across various industries is a significant driver. Its ability to manufacture biodegradable packaging materials, aligning with growing environmental concerns further drives its market growth. In the agricultural industry, it is utilized in addressing the need for eco-friendly solutions in crop protection and soil management practices.

Furthermore, in the medical field, PHB's applications in biodegradable medical implants and drug delivery systems bolster its demand across the world. However, certain factors are required to be kept in check for an efficient industrial PHB procurement such as the environment, regulatory, and government policies along with the fluctuation in demand for PHB across various industries.

Raw Material for Polyhydroxy Butyrate (PHB)

According to the PHB manufacturing plant project report, the raw material for PHB production includes switchgrass and sugarcane bagasse.

Manufacturing process of Polyhydroxy Butyrate (PHB)

The extensive PHB production cost report consists of the following major industrial manufacturing process:

  • Production from switchgrass and sugarcane bagasse: gasification of products like switchgrass and sugarcane bagasse to synthesis gas (syngas) takes place, which is fermented to PHB.

Polyhydroxy butyl(PHB) is a whitish, granular, and brittle substance with a melting point of roughly 180-190°C. It has a density of roughly 1.25 g/cm3, which is comparable to many traditional polymers. It has a high degree of crystallinity, which provides it with good mechanical qualities such as tensile strength and stiffness.

Its brittleness, on the other hand, limits its usage as a solo material, and it is frequently combined with other polymers to improve its qualities. Under certain conditions, it is also biodegradable, giving it an appealing alternative to traditional plastics in applications where biodegradability is critical.
