CLERMONT-FERRAND – Bioplastics firm Carbios has signed an exclusive joint development agreement with biological solutions provider Novozymes, through which Carbios secures a consistent supply of enzymes that will help scale its enzymatic polyester depolymerisation process.

Two years ago, Ecotextile News covered news from French firm Carbios that it had further developed its process – which breaks down PET into its core monomers to be upcycled into virgin-grade material once more – and was exploring new pathways to recycle polyester and potentially provide new solutions to upcycling polyesters without the use of raw materials derived from fossil fuels.

Having partnered with Novozymes for the past year, this new agreement reinforces the pairs’ ambition of scaling the novel enzymatic recycling process which is said to be less energy intensive than chemical recycling.

Construction of a demonstration plant for the recycling of PET-based plastics is set to begin this year.
