The MELiSSA Foundation has co-financed a research project on terrestrial-based CO2 recycling and storage, which was conducted at the University of Lausanne and led to a 2-volume publication.
Poly(hydroxybutyrate-co-hydroxyhexanoate) [P(HB-co-HHx)] and poly(hydroxybutyrate-co-hydroxyvalerate-co-hydroxyhexanoate) [P(HB-co-HV-co-HHx)] demonstrate interesting mechanical and thermal properties as well as excellent biocompatibility, making them suitable for multiple applications and notably biomedical purposes.
