Carbios is developing biological and innovative technologies to revolutionize the end of life of plastics and textiles. Through its unique approach of combining enzymes and plastics, Carbios aims to address a major challenge of the times: plastic and textile pollution. Its enzymatic recycling technology 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.

As we near commercialization, it is a pleasure to be a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer. After 10 years of intensive R&D work, our PET recycling technology is able to meet increasing market demand for high-quality recycled PET.
