Identification

Evanesto® is an additive that speeds-up the biodegradation and compostability of PLA-based plastics. This additive, based on an enzyme, accelerates the depolymerization of PLA to achieve Home Compost certification. Used as a masterbatch, it requires no changes in industrial transforming processes. With Evanesto® inside, PLA-based plastics become universally compostable both in industrial and domestic conditions. Thanks to Evanesto®, plastics that are too thin, soiled or made from multi-materials can be composted whereas they couldn’t be recycled today. The additive can help tackle plastic pollution and change consumers behaviours regarding plastic and the sorting of wastes. It is a turnkey solution that targets millions of tons of plastic wastes that are incinerated or landfilled today, creating major pollution issues the solution aims to tackle thanks to composting, a complementary solution to reuse or recycling of plastics.

The environmental benefits

  • 1 ton of Evanesto® = 20 tons less of plastic waste
  • In less than 200 days, PLA-based plastics will be fully composted
  • In less than 200 days, PLA articles will be fully composted without any microparticules nor ecotoxicity
  • Longitudinal strength improved by 2 compared to polystyrene materials
03.

The Financial benefits

  • Reduction of the plastic landfill by 30% by 2024
  • Price increase of the overall packaging cost would be limited to 1 to 3% maximum and will be compensated by the final cost in the end of life (incineration or industrial composting)

Carbios Receives Support From The European Commission Through the LIFE Program

Carbios, a pioneer in the development of enzymatic solutions dedicated to the end-of-life of plastic and textile polymers, announced today that it has received € 3.3 million in the form of a European grant. T.EN Zimmer GmbH, will provide its expertise on monomer repolymerization in 100% recycled PET, and Deloitte on environmental performance analysis.

Carbios Strengthens Its Position in Polymer Biodegradation Technologies With the Acquisition of the SPI Fund's Entire Stake of Carbiolice Capital

Green chemistry: with its 114 million, Carbios will afford a first plastics recycling plant

Auvergne-based company Carbios has raised 114 million euros to develop its PET recycling technology. The first demonstrator site will be inaugurated next September in Clermont-Ferrand. The company is also preparing to build, by the end of 2024, its first production plant.

Two companies in the Riom basin, Carbiolice and Sabi Agri, obtain the Greentech Innovation label - Riom (63200)

Two companies from the Riom basin (Puy-de-Dôme) are among the new class of French start-ups that have won the Greentech Innovation label. One develops a process promoting the biodegradation of plastics, the other invents electric tractors.

With Carbiolice, Nadia Auclair makes plastic 100% compostable

The jury for the Business with Attitude - Madame Figaro prize has selected ten semi-finalists. Nadia Auclair, president of Carbiolice, competes in the next tech category. She has developed an enzymatic additive which, added to the manufacture of plastic packaging, makes it 100% compostable.

With Carbiolice, plant-based plastic becomes biodegradable

Evanesto is a natural enzyme-based additive developed by the start-up Carbiolice. It takes less than 200 days to degrade a PLA packaging, which is less time than the leaves of a tree. One ton of Evanesto can degrade 20 tons of plastic waste. The company hopes to replace 5 billion non-recyclable yogurt pots in France with compostable pots by 2025.

10,000 startups 2021 prize: Carbiolice, the crazy ambition to make plastic clean

Only 25% of plastics are ultimately recycled, according to French start-up Carbiolice. The company has developed an enzyme-based additive that makes plastic biodegradable. The additive is already being used in the food industry, but only 1% of it is marketed.
