The Carbiolice/Barbier project aims at developing a new type of biodegradable mulch film with a higher content of bio-based plastics (PLA).


A few months after the ban on plastic plates, disposable cups and cotton buds, a new generation of single-use products has emerged. The spread of masks, gloves, gowns and wipes out of household garbage bins is causing environmental associations and waste collectors to panic. The problem of the end of life of plastic is not solved. Except, perhaps, in some cases...


The young Puydomoise company Carbiolice, co-founded by Limagrain, Carbios and Bpifrance, has developed an additive designed to make plant-based plastic totally compostable. An innovation that has been patented several times, and which is about to enter the production process of plastics manufacturers.


New: Carbiolice Start-up and the Barbier Group join their know-how to develop biodegradable mulch films with Evanesto® inside.


Carbiolice, a France-based start-up whose self-described mission is to develop biobased, biodegradable and compostable plastic solutions with a ‘respectful environmental footprint’, has teamed up with agricultural film manufacturer Barbier Group on the development of a new PLA-based mulch film.


Non-biodegradable single-use plastic films will soon be banned in agriculture. Carbiolice and the Barbier group are currently testing a mulch film enriched with plastic of vegetable origin and containing an enzymatic additive allowing their biodegradation.
