In France, bioplastics company CARBIOS and its subsidiary CARBIOLICE, signed a co-development agreement with enzyme production leader Novozymes. Under the terms of this global and multi-year agreement, Novozymes will produce on an industrial scale the proprietary enzyme developed by CARBIOS and is committed to becoming, in the long term, exclusive supplier of CARBIOLICE.

“This unprecedented collaboration in the field of bioplasturgy is intended to provide a competitive and environmentally friendly solution for the biodegradation of single-use plastics,” according to the press release.

CARBIOLICE, a joint venture created by CARBIOS, Limagrain Céréales Ingrédients and Bpifrance, will produce and market a new generation of products allowing single-use plastics to be fully biodegradable in domestic conditions. Targeted markets cover commercial applications such as cash and retail bags, rigid and flexible packaging, disposable tableware and agricultural mulch films.

The planned commercial launch in 2020 will generate for CARBIOS the first license revenues from CARBIOLICE.
