The University of Queensland in Australia is offering a Ph.D. scholarship on the development of exciting new PHA based biodegradable bioplastics and biocomposites for the transition to a new and sustainable plastic economy. Biodegradable bioplastics and biocomposites will be pivotal in the transition to a more sustainable plastics economy, with the production capacity of the important biodegradable biopolymer PHA being estimated to more than triple in the next five years. It is estimated that, in Europe alone, the number of people employed in the bioplastics sector could increase by more than ten-fold by 2030, with up to 300,000 high-skilled jobs being created.
