Carbios designs and develops innovative processes to rethink the life cycle of plastics.
By combining enzymology and plastics processing, an innovative industrial approach, Carbios opens new ecological and sustainable paths for the treatment of plastic waste and the production of biopolymers.
A pioneer in the development of enzymatic processes applied to plastic materials, the Company is developing three technologies aimed at:
– create 100% biodegradable plastics with a controlled lifespan and adapted to use
– infinitely recycle plastic waste enzymatically
– Open new, more competitive routes for the production of biopolymers
In September 2016, the Company initiated the industrial development of its first biodegradation technologies with the operational start-up of the Carbiolice joint venture, created with Limagrain Céréales Ingrédients and the SPI “Sociétés de Projets Industriels” fund operated by Bpifrance. Carbiolice is today a 100% subsidiary of Carbios.
