Polyhydroxy Butyrate (PHB) is a thermoplastic polyester which can be easily thermoformed. It is a biopolymer that can be decomposed naturally like other organic wastes. PHB is a biopolymer obtained from certain microorganisms due to carbon assimilation (from glucose and starch). The most common type of polyhydroxy butyrate is poly-3-hydroxybutyrate or P3HB. PHB has many industrial applications due to its biocompatible nature, high tensile strength, and good resistance to UV light.

CAS Number: Production Processes:

  • Production of Polyhydroxy Butyrate (PHB) from Gasification

In this process, gasification of products like switchgrass and sugarcane bagasse to synthesis gas (syngas) takes place, which is fermented to PHB. The syngas containing CO2 and H2 are the critical sources for microorganisms like Ralstonia eutropha to produce PHB.
