World-first enzyme-based process enabling infinite recycling of PET plastics and fibers.
Technology provides an industrial solution to the recycling of PET plastics and textiles (the dominant polymer in bottles, trays, and textiles made of polyester). The enzymatic recycling technology developed by Carbios deconstructs any type of PET plastic waste into its basic components, which can then be reused to produce new PET plastics of a quality equivalent to virgin ones. This innovation, the first of its kind in the world, was recently recognized in a scientific paper published in the prestigious journal Nature.
Potential saving of 45,000 tons of co2 equivalent per year
Successful production of the world’s first food-grade PET plastic bottles produced entirely from enzymatically recycled plastic.
Carbios’ enzymatic recycling process therefore enables Michelin to get one step closer to its sustainable ambitions, and contributes to the entry of tires into a true circular economy. Michelin is committed to achieving 40% sustainable materials (of renewable or recycled origin) by 2030 and 100% by 2050.
Result of Citeo's call for tender: 108,000 tons of plastic packaging recycled by 2025; 4 new recycling units built in France, and 5 consolidated thanks to the tender;
Processing capacity will be 50,000 tonnes of waste per year.
