The establishment of Biotech (Green Ocean and Blue Planet Initiative) Div.
The Biotech (Green Ocean and Blue Planet Initiative) Div., a research and development center, which is to commercialize the production of PHA for plant-based plastics (bio-plastics) using marine microorganisms (unicellular algae) by Tel Aviv University (Israel)'s technology in Japan with Japanese equipment, has been established in the Kyoto Research Park.
－ PHA (polyhydroxyalkanoic acid) ―
PHA is finally discomposed in the sea and soil by microorganisms to create water and carbon dioxides, those water and carbon dioxide are then taken in by the plants, creating a circulation in the natural world. It is one of the sustainable "biodegradable plastics" with low environmental impact.
