Innovations to retransform plastic

After recycling our plastic waste from everyday consumption (bottles, flasks, glasses, clothes, shoes, bags, watches, etc.), one solution would be to reprocess these plastics, which are so hard-earned and stupidly abandoned.

These mountains of waste of no apparent value are currently transformed into electricity or oil by enzymatic, pyrolysis and depolymerization processes.

Discover below a list of companies that are innovating in this direction, in order to transform our waste into energy.

Carbios - Innovations Océans sans plastiques

Green chemistry company in industrial development phase. It designs and develops enzymatic processes to rethink the life cycle of plastics.

The Company is now developing three technologies to create a new generation of 100% biodegradable and infinitely recyclable plastics to enable a true circular economy.

Etia - Innovations Océans sans plastiques

ETIA is a French engineering group specializing in innovations, equipment and heat treatment processes. It offers a multitude of solutions for the thermal treatment of bulk products.

Their Biogreen system, delivered in a container, could be the solution to the problem of energy and plastic waste management. These containerized units allow a pyrolysis of plastics and a conversion of plastics into synthesis gas intended for the production of electricity, steam or heat.

ETIA works in partnership with the Race for Water association.

Ioniqa - Innovations Océans sans plastiques

Ioniqa is a Dutch company specialized in creating values from PET waste. They are able to set up a circular economy for plastic, thanks to their depolymerization method. This method transforms PET waste into “virgin quality” resources.

Upcycling processes for other types of plastics are under study and are expected to be launched in the near future.

Pyrum Innovations - Innovations Océans sans plastiques

Pyrum Innovations proposes to use the thermolysis process as a solution to recycling our waste. It is a process of thermal decomposition of organic substances in an oxygen-free atmosphere. It generates various types of raw materials: oil, gas, electricity, thermal energy, etc.

Pyrum Innovations, specialized in the recycling of rubber, plastics, carbon fibers, bituminous products, but also of various organic or mineral waste products. Their recycling process is already marketed worldwide and can be delivered fully functional straight away.
