Unlike current plastics recycling processes, which are mainly mechanical, the biological recycling process is based on the direct use of biological catalysts: bacteria or enzymes.

This new approach makes it possible to depolymerize polymers of interest in a specific way in order to re-polymerize.

Our strengths

  • More specifically, the biotechnology laboratory is actively working on the degradation of plastics by bacterial means (direct use of bacteria or their enzymes) into small fractions (monomers or small polymers) which can then be used to reform new plastics. The laboratory uses its in-depth knowledge of enzymes and microbiology to make effective use of these biotechnologies for the degradation of plastics but also to identify new enzyme and/or bacterial candidates.
