Originální abstrakt

Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are produced from renewable carbon resources by some microorganisms belonging to the Bacteria and Archaea domains of life. Mechanical properties of PHAs make them suitable replacements for petrochemically produced bulk plastics (polyethylene, polypropylene etc.), but in contrast to these commodity plastics PHA are completely biodegradable to carbon dioxide and water without formation of any toxic by-product. PHAs are environmentally compatible polymeric materials and can be processed into films and fibres. PHAs are naturally degraded by intracellular and extracellular PHA depolymerases.
