> Evaluation of KEM ONE’s industrial site at Saint-Fons (France) for the implementation by CARBIOS of an industrial demonstration plant of its breakthrough technology

> TechnipFMC in charge of the engineering study upstream the construction of a demonstration plant


CARBIOS (Euronext Growth Paris: ALCRB) announces today the signature of a Letter of Intent (LOI) with KEM ONE for an implementation project, in the French Chemical Valley, of an industrial demonstration plant to secure the value of its breakthrough technology.

PET plastics and fibers are used to make everyday consumer goods such as bottles, packaging and textile. Today, most of PET is produced from fossil resources, used and discarded according a wasteful linear. By creating a circular economy from used plastics and fibers, CARBIOS biorecycling technology is bringing a sustainable and eco-friendly solution. Indeed, this proprietary innovation enables to use waste plastics and fibers instead of petrochemicals to produce new virgin material, with no loss of quality.

Under the terms of this Letter of Intent, CARBIOS and KEM ONE have defined the principles that will guide their collaboration over the next six months in the prospect of the implementation of a PET biorecycling demonstration plant on KEM ONE’s industrial site in Saint-Fons. CARBIOS undertakes to study the construction of its demonstration plant on Saint-Fons site. KEM ONE undertakes to make its best efforts to mobilize all stakeholders and assist CARBIOS in defining the conditions for the provision of land, main utilities and required services, and in its procedures involving public authorities.

Upstream the construction of the demonstration plant, expected to start mid-2019, CARBIOS will be assisted and advised for the engineering study by its partner TechnipFMC, a world leading company in engineering and technologies.

Alain CONSONNI, Site Manager at KEM ONE comments: “We are delighted to enter in such discussions with CARBIOS. Our industrial site, embedded in France’s birthplace of chemistry, is ideally placed to host innovative clean technologies. As a major player in the vinyl industry in Europe, we are deeply committed to promoting and developing solutions that addresses key environmental and societal challenges of our time.”

Jean-Claude LUMARET, CEO of CARBIOS adds: “With this ambitious project, we’ll reinforce our anchorage in the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region. The economic vitality of the Chemical Valley and KEM ONE’s site at Saint-Fons seem perfectly suited for the scale-up and subsequent industrial demonstration of our innovative technology. Its organization offers many industrial synergies with the pooling of services, equipment and resources. We are confident that our strategy will lead to a successful industrial roll-out of our biological solution for infinite recycling of PET plastics and fibers.”


About CARBIOS

CARBIOS is a green chemistry company whose innovations are designed to meet environmental and sustainable development issues faced by global industrial players. Since its creation in 2011, CARBIOS has developed two industrial bioprocesses dedicated to the biodegradation and the biorecycling of polymers. These breakthrough innovations, which are a worldwide premiere, leverage the highly specific properties of enzymes to optimize the performances and the life cycle of plastic and textile materials. CARBIOS’ economic development model is based on the industrialization and commercialization of its products, enzymes, technologies, and bioprocesses via the concession of licenses, directly or via joint ventures to major industrial players in the sectors that can make use of the Company’s innovative technologies. For instance, CARBIOS created in September 2016, the joint-venture CARBIOLICE, in partnership with Limagrain Céréales Ingrédients and the SPI investment fund run by Bpifrance. This company, controlled by CARBIOS, will operate the first patented enzymatic biodegradation technology licensed by CARBIOS by producing enzymated pellets to be used for the production of a new generation of bio-sourced and biodegradable plastics. Since inception, CARBIOS benefits from the financial support of the leading European venture capital firm Truffle Capital. CARBIOS was granted the label “Young Innovative Company” by Bpifrance (former OSEO) and is eligible for investments by private equity mutual funds (FCPIs).
