Carbios Announces the Grant of Two Key US Patents
Carbios, Clermont-Ferrand, France, a green chemistry company specializing in technologies dedicated to the recovery of plastic waste, announces that it has been granted two key US patents and has exercised the worldwide licensing options on these patent families.
These licences concern two key patent families for Carbios. The first is for the proprietary process of enzyme inclusion in plastics for which patents have been granted in France and in the USA. The second covers a PLA-degrading strain for which requests have also been granted in France, Europe, the USA, Mexico, China and Japan. With these licences, Carbios secures its proprietary technologies for the production of a new generation of biodegradable plastics with a controlled lifespan.
These exclusive licences, acquired by Carbios in 2012 from the CNRS, the University of Poitiers and Valagro Carbone Renouvelable as part of the Thanaplast collaborative research and development project, provide Carbios with the ability to grant sub-licences to industrials on its biodegradation process. Today, the exploitation of Carbios’ innovation in the field of biodegradation is founded on nine patent families: three on biodiversity and six on the production process of biodegradable plastics.
