CARBIOS, which was introduced on the Alternext Paris market in December 2013, is a green chemistry company in the industrial development phase. Carbios designs and develops innovative enzymatic processes to rethink the life cycle of plastics.
By combining enzymology and plastics processing, an innovative industrial approach, CARBIOS revolutionizes the treatment of plastic waste and the production of biopolymers. A world pioneer in Bioplastics, the Company is currently developing three technologies aimed at:
1 – creating a new generation of 100% biodegradable plastics by including a degradation enzyme in the polymer matrix (biodegradation)
2 – infinitely recycling plastic waste by enzymatic means to allow a real circular economy of the product (biorecycling)
3 – producing biopolymers completely biologically (bioproduction)
Carbios has successfully validated the fifth and final key stage of the Thanaplast ® project which brings together leading academic and industrial partners (INRA, TWB, INSA de Toulouse, CNRS, Université de Poitiers, Limagrain, Groupe Barbier and Déinove (a company of Truffle Capital’s portfolio).
