OUR MISSION

OUR STRENGTHS

A STARTUP SPIRIT AT THE HEART OF INDUSTRIAL KNOW-HOW
WITH AN INDUSTRIAL ORGANIZATION.

Carbiolice created in 2016, is the fruit of the shared, complementary ambitions of 3 entities :

Enzymatic biodegradation
technologies for plastics

Financial support
for strategic industrial activity

Producer of cereal
ingredients

15 years of industrial experience in the bioplastics business, including 5 years of research, gave birth to Carbiolice, an agile startup endowed with know-how and industrial organization.
Certified ISO 9001, Carbiolice has thus become a creator of opportunities in an increasingly restrictive legal and economic environment.

ORIGINS IN AGRICULTURAL MULCH FILMS.

Precursor of mulching in France since 1965, the agricultural cooperative Limagrain began working on the development of biodegradable mulch films. This success drove to the birth of Biolice® compounds, the first French compostable and biodegradable plastic raw material.

1996

CONQUEST OF PLASTIC BAGS AND INTERNATIONAL MARKETS.

Biolice® biopolymers were launched for plastic bags applications. HI (Humanity & Inclusion) relayed our expertise to develop a 100% biodegradable Christmas tree bag. Gamm Vert proposed 100% compostable plastic carry bags using our polymers. At the same time, business expanded beyond our national frontiers with success in the United Kingdom, India and China.
