PHAs are biodegradable, bio-based polyesters with quality physical and mechanical properties. For just one example, NodaxTM PHA from Danimer Scientific is experiencing significant growth and has been chosen by Bacardi (Hamilton, Bermuda) to replace 80 million PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) bottles (3000 tons) currently produced by the company.
