BIOCYCLE-UA is a cooperation project of three Upper Austrian, non-university research institutions from Linz: 
Competence Center CHASE GmbH, Kompetenzzentrum Holz GmbH and RECENDT GmbH. 

The goal is to build R&D capacities on the topic of circular economy.

Using the example of new, bio-based and fully biodegradable plastics (polyhydroxyalkanoates, PHA or polylactic acid, PLA), development topics in the closed material cycle will be addressed.

The NON-K project "BIOCYCLE-UA" primarily serves to the development of an interdisciplinary and cross-company knowledge base along the value chain in the field of biobased plastics in the sense of innovation-driven material and process research.

The project consists of 4 work packages:

  • Synthesis of biopolymers

  • Processing of biopolymers

  • Recycling of biopolymers

  • Process analytics
