BUGWORKERS is a European collaborative project aiming to develop new tailor-made materials from environmentally friendly production routes. The materials are based on a polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) biopolymer matrix and lignocellulosic nanofibres and will be a real alternative to existing engineering materials. The outcomes of this project will be targeted at 2 main sectors - household appliances and computers/telecommunications.

June 2014 - Bugworkers Project Webinar

Bugworkers Project partners to hosted a free hour-long webinar on 25th June 2014 at 15:00 CET to disseminate the project results. Webinar attendees will learnt about the fermentation processes by which polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) and its co-polymers are produced, compounding of PHB and its use in manufacturing door entry systems.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement number 246449.
