PHA from Start to Finish
A Life Cycle That's Only Natural.
Life Cycle of a PHA Food Service Item
GenZero's circular approach starts with Canola seeds that are harvested then cold press crushed for their oil. Byproducts are used for fertilizer or livestock feed.
Oil is fed to soil bacteria in a controlled fermentation process and PHA is extracted using a solvent free separation process. It’s then pelletized for conversion into finished food service products.
Pellets are extruded and thermoformed into finished food service articles like hinged containers, plates and bowls.
Items are used at restaurants, schools, commissaries or at home.
Once done, food service products may be discarded in industrial compost facilities where they will biodegrade leaving no toxic residue.
