12/04/2018

We mentioned them when we were speaking about plastics: Carbios, the french company specialised in enzymatic recycling, has just announced reaching a new milestone in a recent press release. The company has managed to divide by three the time required to hydrolyse PET, managing a yield of 97% conversion in 24 hours.

The next step for Carbios? An industrial demonstration by 2019 and the set-up of a 10,000 tons plant to start producing recycled PET by 2021.
