CARBIOS, a French company pioneering new, bio-industrial solutions to reinvent the lifecycle of plastic and textile polymers, recently announced its first PET-bottles made with 100% Purified Terephthalic Acid (rPTA), through the enzymatic biorecycling of plastic waste.
The world-first PET bottles made of 100% recycled plastic waste marks as the company’s major milestone. It also confirms the potential of the company’s technology to engage the whole industry in a responsible transition towards a circular economy that will benefit the environment and future generations.
By decoupling the production of new plastic bottles from petrochemical feedstock and making waste collection economically more viable, CARBIOS’ technology offers a sustainable and efficient solution to change the way we produce some of the most commonly used plastic products and meet the needs of brand-owners and consumers.
Jean-Claude Lumaret, CEO of CARBIOS, stated, “The plastics industry faces fundamental challenges related to sustainability. Our technology, based on a circular model, reuses resources rather than consuming them. This new milestone takes us one step closer to bringing our technology to the market.With the construction of our demonstration plant to start later this year, we’re aiming to engage the whole plastics industry in a transition towards a circular economy and take a leadership role as a global license provider for the biorecycling of PET plastics and fibers.”
“This new milestone shows the strong potential of CARBIOS’ enzymatic technology and provides a breakthrough solution to help solve society’s growing waste problem,” CARBIOS’ Chief Scientific Officer, Alain Marty, added.
