The intended breakthrough in this project is to produce PLA from the cellulose fraction in raw municipal wastewater, called screenings. Screenings is the fraction captured, using rotating belt fine screens, behind the coarse screening. The toilet paper, in particular the cellulose fibers present in it, is a very suitable raw material for the production of bioplastics.
