This award is given to a raw material or indgredient that makes a significant environment difference in the area of sustainibility.
And what exactly is Hydal PHA?
Hydal PHA is a biopolymer that is produced biotechnologically from two biosources – used natural oils or waste from beer production. The specific form of the biopolymer is P3HB. This biopolymer is biocompatible, non-toxic and fully biodegradable /is the reference material for biodegradability in the new microplastics regulation/. Hydal PHA in powder form with a particle size of 1-5 microns is a new cosmetic ingredient that:
Hydal PHA is an upcycling ingredient. It is made from materials that are after use and are feedstock for biotechnological processes. The environmental impact of upcycling ingredients is quantified by LCA based on the avoided sources principle. This means that instead of primary natural materials, secondary raw materials are used. At the same time, the biotechnological process of biopolymer production is based on Zero Waste principles/all production outputs are recycled, waste biomass is used to produce energy for the technology/. The production processes used are fully compliant with Green Chemistry.
