CARBIOLICE formulates the enzyme produced by its partner Novozymes so that the enzyme activity is protected at high temperatures. The enzyme takes the form of an additive named EVANESTO®.

EVANESTO® is added to a compound with a high content of PLA during conventional converting processes like film extrusion, thermoforming, injection molding.

The enzyme is inactive during the entire period of the product use.

A combination of conditions is necessary to activate the enzyme. With EVANESTO®, PLA becomes compostable in home composting conditions (NF T51-800). It facilitates and accelerates industrial composting and generates bio-gas in methanization.
