(PHA) is biopolymer accumulated as intracellular inclusion bodies under special nutritional conditions usually when nitrogen is limited and carbon is in excess.
(PHA) are aliphatic polyesters that are synthesized by microorganisms under unbalanced growth conditions [1,2].
In addition, according to recent reports, (39,40) the other companies involved in such green activities as developing bio-based plastics include DuPont, which claims that it has recently developed high performance polyol ("Cerenol") based bio-materials; Archer Daniels Midland and Metabolix, which aim to jointly produce polyhydroxyalkanoate
(PHA) based renewable materials; and Cereplast, which is a producer of bio-based polyactic acid.
Widespread reliance on petroleum-based polymers that caused serious environmental pollution due to the development of the social and economic sectors has accelerated the utilization of biodegradable polymers such as polylactic acid (PLA), polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) and polyhydroxyalkanoate
or fermentation products, like polylactic acid (PLA), polyhydroxyalkanoate
(PHA), and polyhydroxy-butyrate (PHB).
The company's largest platform, commercialized through Telles LLC, a joint venture with Archer-Daniels-Midland Company ("ADM"), is a polyhydroxyalkanoate
("PHA") bioplastics product called Mirel.
Specifically, the Complaint alleges that defendants materially misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that Telles LLC ("Telles"), the Company's joint venture with Archer-Daniels-Midland ("ADM"), would not meet its commercial phase benchmark by mid-2010, or even in 2011, which would allow the Metabolix to receive royalty payments and payments from services from Telles; and that Metabolix's polyhydroxyalkanoate
bioplastics product under the brand name "Mirel" was not a commercially viable product.

has expanded its line of color concentrates for common biopolymers to include colorants for polyhydroxyl butyrate/valerate (PHBV), a subclass of the polyhydroxyalkanoate
(PHA) biopolymer family.
com has added a new market research report: Polyhydroxyalkanoate
(PHA) Market, By Application (Packaging, Food Services, Bio-medical, Agriculture) & Raw Material - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018
In the biopolymer segment, PLA continues to lead the segment by a strong margin, while the polyhydroxyalkanoate
(PHA) market, though still strong, is experiencing real fluidity due to the exit of ADM from its joint venture with Metabolix.
