I. CO2 BIOCLEAN
PURPOSE

  • Novel business model enabled by a patented fermentation technology to produce 100% biodegradable textile fibers from CO2 emissions.
  • The mission of CO2BioClean is making valuable biodegradable biopolymers well-available by the efficient conversion of CO2 emissions.
  • We aim contributing towards a plastic-pollution free planet by 2030, while creating a relevant impact on reducing industrial emissions.

Working principle of CO2BioClean CO2emissions are transformed into biodegradable polymers that are then used for the production of 100% degradable and sustainable end user products.

II. Problem

CO2 Emitting Industry
Card image cap
  • 3.5 billion tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
  • CO2 emission allowances cost € 40-55 mt
    (one allowance gives the right to emit
    1 ton of CO2). High prices drive companies
    to lose their competitiveness.
Global Warning
Card image cap
  • Leads to several environmental issues.
  • Urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG)
    emissions, especially CO2.
Plastic Pollution
Card image cap
  • Over 80 million tons of disposable plastics per year.
  • Micro-plastics in oceans and seas.
  • Small number of sustainable options to replace plastics.

III. Solution

CO2BioClean addresses two problems at the same time: climate change and pollution.
Process efficiency: 2.5 mt of CO2 1 ton of PHA
TURNING CO2 INDUSTRIAL EMISSIONS INTO BIODEGRADABLE POLYMERS
  • CO2BIOCLEAN technology converts CO2 from industrial emissions into high-performance biodegradable biopolymers namely Polyhydroxyalkanoatepolymers(PHA).
  • The conversion occurs through a green , low environmental impact and C-footprint process.
  • The PHAs bioplastics are biodegradable and compost in the soil and marine environment after their lifecycle.

We use carbon emissions

to produce biodegradable biopolymers

to replace highly pollutant plastic materials.

  • The CO2 conversion process is based on highyield bacterial fermentation.
  • The finishing is integrated with the conversion step, specific for end use, e.q. compound or fibers.
  • The unique process control enables to obtain a wide composition range of high-performance biopolymers.
  • We deliver biopolymers with improved balance of performances and aesthetics.

Our portfolio of CO2-based applications

We transform harmful CO2 into value-added biodegradable biopolymers

We address directly Climate Change and Plastic Pollution through our proprietary technology

We produce PHB biopolymers that decompose by microbial biodegradation: both compostable (compliant with ASTM D6400 and 6868) and biodegradable in marine environment (compliant with ASTM D7081)
