Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are a group of biopolymers synthesized via bacterial fermentation. PHAs have emerged as a potential alternative to conventional plastics owing to their biodegradability and sustainable production process. The purpose of this review is to highlight key factors involved in the economical production of PHAs.
