Abstract:

Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are the most fascinating group of biopolymer emerges to be the potential candidate for substitute of synthetic plastics. However, high cost of both upstream and downstream processing has limited their successful commercialization. Among these two processes, recovery methodology of PHAs significantly affects the overall production economics. Thus, various recovery technologies including chemical digestion, solvent extraction, enzymatic treatment, supercritical fluid disruption, mechanical disruption, flotation techniques, aqueous two-phase system and use of gamma irradiation have been used in different industry and academia. In this review, we summarized the quantity and quality analysis of PHAs produced, particularly by Bacillus species with special reference to downstream processing, which may lead to get high purity and maximum recovery at a low production cost.
