PDW spectroscopy for Biodegradable Plastics

During a joint project of innoFSPEC and the chair of bioprocess engineering at the TU Berlin, photon density wave (PDW) spectroscopy has been successfully applied as a process analytical tool for the production of biodegradable plastics. For the first time, it was possible to observe the biotechnological production process inline and in real time, allowing to optimise its efficiency. The achievements were reported by the German radio station Deutschlandfunk. For more details, see also the joint publication from TU Berlin and innoFSPEC.
