Try to invent: Bio-on launches a call for project proposals related to the development of innovative applications based on Polyhydroxyalcanoates (PHA)
The challenge has begun. The Matter_ is the kit containing PHAs made from Bio-on technology.
We are proud to have an open mentality, ready to support anyone with a good idea.
The future of biopolymers depends on a breadth of projects around the world that enable scientists and businesses to express their creativity through daring innovation. Not only will it be possible to replace oil-based plastics, but also think about new uses that were impossible with old polluting plastic. It's all very simple: send your idea or project to Bio-on for selection using the form on this website. Bio-on will accompany you on this new adventure and help bring your project to fruition. Nature will be the real protagonist of the future biochemical industry.
Bio-on is focused on the investigation and development of all the possible applications using PHA in any field, thus expanding the biopolymer performances beyond the current limits.
The already known superior characteristics of PHAs allowed Bio-on to register numerous patents in several application areas such as: automotive, interior design, rigid and flexible packaging, cosmetics, biomedical, smart materials and others.
