Applications of PHAs

There are many similarities between properties of PHAs and those of many conventional plastics. Therefore, PHAs can be processed to many different forms and shapes using conventional techniques such as injection molding, extrusion, film blowing, fiber-spray molding, etc. They may also be provided in the form of colloidal suspensions in water, or solutions in various solvents. Combining their unique water resistance, biodegradability and biocompatibility not found in any other materials, a wide range of possible commercial applications can be exploited. The following table provides a summary of possible applications.
