Carbios, a company pioneering new, bio-industrial solutions to reinvent the lifecycle of plastic and textile polymers, has developed an innovative enzymatic process for recycling PET plastic such as bottles, packaging and textiles. Carbios has brought a game changing answer to the global plastic pollution crisis by creating a genuine circular economy.

The process was discussed at the XXV Enzyme Engineering Conference in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.

Carbios chief scientific officer, Prof Alain Marty, said that the company has developed novel enzymes allowing PET plastics such as bottles, packaging and textiles to be recycled in an eco-responsible way. Drawing on the company’s proprietary enzyme engineering technologies and the extensive experience of its team and partners, Carbios has developed a breakthrough solution to infinitely recycle all kind of PET plastics and polyester fibres.

Enzymes are ubiquitous in modern industry, but they have never been applied to the lifecycle of plastics. Carbios is the first player to bridge this gap and bring a game changing answer to the global plastic pollution crisis by creating a genuine circular economy. Carbios enzymes can breakdown PET waste into its basic components, which can then be used in any original application. This resource conserving approach can make an important contribution to sustainability.

“Our advances foreshadow the industrial deployment of a revolutionary technology which will allow improved recycling for some of the most commonly used plastics. Our goal is to provide consumers and corporates with an efficient and competitive circular economy solution that can help tackle the global plastic pollution crisis,” said Jean-Claude Lumaret, CEO of Carbios. “We believe that enzymatic engineering can provide a disruptive industrial solution combining improved recycling performance with the highest sustainability standards,” commented Marty, CSO of Carbios.

Carbios is a green chemistry company whose innovations provide solutions to the environmental and sustainable development issues manufacturers currently face. Since its founding in 2011, the company has developed two industrial-scale biological processes for the biological breakdown and recycling of polymers. (SV)
