ABAKAL - BIALAC Project
Abakal will participate in the development of a new biomaterial product based on the recovery of milk serum and urban sludge.
The most important objective of the project is to develop a biomaterial based on biodegradable polymers (bioplastics), at a low cost through the use of low-value raw material based on whey from a dairy industry and sludge from urban treatment plants. The process will at the same time reduce the production costs of biopolymers (polyhydroxyalkanoates, PHA), enhance milk serum and sewage sludge, and produce new 100% biodegradable food packaging formulations, thus contributing to a circular economy model.
At the same time, the production of volatile fatty acids (VFA), which are compounds of high value in the market, both economically and ecologically, will be studied.
