(2013)116 created an innovative way to develop renewable biopolyester
microbial-based multilayer structures with enhanced barrier performance, which
is of significant interest for food packaging applications. The researchers
developed multilayer structures based on polyhydroxybutyrateco-valerate with a
valerate content of 12% (PHBV12) containing a high barrier interlayer of zein
electrospun nanofibers. The incorporation of 3-hydroxyvalerate (HV) in PHB,
resulting in PHBV, has ...

PHA serves as an energy and carbon storage compound for the bacteria. PHA
can be extracted and purified from the bacterial cells and the resulting product
resembles some commodity plastics such as polypropylene. Because PHA is a
microbial product, there are natural enzymes that can degrade and decompose
PHA. Therefore, PHA is an attractive material that can be developed as a bio-
based and biodegradable plastic. In addition, PHA is also known to be
biocompatible and ...

The identified microorganisms belonged to several taxa: Bacillus, Pseudomonas,
Streptomyces. Then, as the range of the investigated PHAs broadened,
microorganisms degrading not only homogenous hydroxybutyrate but also short-
and medium-chain-length heteropolymers were isolated and described (Brandl
and Puchner, 1 992; Briese et al., 1994; Mergeret et al., 1993; 1994; 1995).
Among PHA biodegraders are the bacteria and actinomycetes that degrade
PHAs in soil, ...
