Originální abstrakt

Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are bacterial polyesters. From an industrial point of view, PHAs are particularly interesting because of their properties, which are reminiscent of some synthetic polymers and also thier biodegradability and biocompatibility. There is a major drawback in PHA’s commercial use. It’s the production cost. There are two main ways how to reduce the price. One possibility is the use of waste substrates and the other is the use of extremophilic microorganisms, in our case specifically thermophilic. The thermophilic strains of the genera Caldimonas and Tepidimonas, which have not been explored so far, present great potential in PHA production. The aim of this work was to create a basic comprehensive overview of the biotechnological potential of these genera.
