Plastics-Design-Polymer-Novozymes-Carbios-develop-plastic-degrading-enzyme-tech

France — Denmark — Danish enzyme manufacturer Novozymes has teamed up with French green chemistry specialist Carbios to commercialise biodegradable plastics. Novozymes will produce Carbios’ plastic-degrading enzyme technology for Carbios’ subsidiary company Carbiolice. Carbiolice will embed these enzymes into single-use plastics, such as plastic bags, to help them biodegrade and tackle the issue of plastic pollution.


“This collaboration is a world premiere in the field of bio-plasturgy that aims to act as a catalyst by making single-use plastics environmentally-friendly and cost competitive,” Carbios said in a statement.


Carbiolice is expected to unveil this solution by 2020. Once the product is launched, Carbiolice will pay royalties to Carbios (@carbios_ipo).


ens Kolind, VP of Technical Industries at Novozymes (@Novozymes), said the company was looking forward to being “part of this joint collaboration” where it worked together “on finding biological solutions to answer one of the biggest challenges of our time”.
