The project will investigate the possibility to use cheap rest raw materials from the Norwegian fish industry as a substrate for microbial production of high value bioplastic (PHAs) and biosurfactants. The planned inventions will enable cost competitive production of bio-based polymers from a hitherto unused rest raw material.
Project title: Valorizing Local Marine Raw Rest Materials into High-Value Bioplastics and Biosurfactants.
Project Duration: 2015–2016
