Biopolymer production

CO2BioClean offers a solution which marks a significant step change in the way biopolymers are produced, not only avoiding any issue of land-use and competition with food supplies (in reality, more a perceived than real issue), but at the same time extracting CO2 from industrial processes as its feedstock, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Using its proprietary and patented technology, CO2BioClean produces biopolymers from the emissions of industrial processes that can be transformed into a material suitable for a wide range of biodegradable and compostable consumer-facing products.

PHAs (PolyHydroxyAlkanoates) are natural polyesters that can have multiple applications in various industries such as packaging, agriculture, medical and pharmaceuticals.

They can be used for paper coating and can be blended to manufacture textiles; meanwhile, rigid PHA can be applied, for example, to the manufacture of furniture, in the automobile industry and in many other areas yet to be explored.

CO2BioClean estimates that the market potential for PHA far exceeds its current availability and could reach 1 million tonnes by 2030, compared to a current annual global production of less than 100,000 tonnes.

Plastics made from renewable rather than fossil sources
are not a new phenomenon.

As early as the 1950s, scientists were able to use carbon from plants, rather than from oil and gas, to make plastics. However, the rapidly increasing scale of fossil fuel extraction provided low cost and globally available feedstocks for plastics, and bioplastics remained for many years, more an experiment than an industrial reality.

In recent decades, a bioplastic industry has grown initially led largely by European and American companies (though now produced worldwide) – seeking to both reduce the carbon footprint of these materials by using renewable resources, and help resolve the major environmental consequence of plastic use and waste.

By producing bioplastics that biodegrade alongside food and garden waste under controlled conditions, such as composting, manufacturers bring an alternative to fossil-based plastics that are difficult to recycle and often end up in the open environment – causing the enormous damage we read about daily to our soils, water systems, oceans, fauna and food chain.

Our company is actively seeking partnerships to scale up and exploit this potential.
