Based in Riom, Carbiolice is among the winners in the "Circular Economy" category. The company has developed an innovative enzymatic process that aims to accelerate the natural biodegradation of plastics of plant origin. In other words: with this technology, food packaging (yoghurt pots, trays, capsules, etc.) and technical packaging (films, bubble wrap, etc.) can be composted.


Barbara Pompili, Minister of Ecological Transition, has unveiled the list of 45 start-ups from the seventh promotion of the GreenTech innovation call for expressions of interest, a competition that aims to develop new products, uses and services for citizens on the various themes of her ministry, such as the decarbonisation of the economy, energy efficiency, renewable energies and the circular economy. Carbiolice is one of the winners.


Good news, the Auvergne-based company Carbiolice has been developing since 2016 a revolutionary solution to accelerate the complete biodegradation of plastics and which allows plastics to finally enter the circular economy. Meeting with Nadia Auclair, its visionary CEO, and Laura Perrin, Communication Manager at Carbiolice.


In packaging, several companies are developing solutions to make plastics biodegradable in industrial conditions... and domestic (in several months). The bioplastics ambition is to accompany the European directive EU 2018/851, which fixes an objective of generalization of the sorting at the source of the biowastes for the member countries at the end of 2023. (...) Carbiolice, another French start-up that produces an enzyme-based additive to make PLA compostable in domestic conditions, is also accelerating. Translated with (free version)


In "La France bouge", Elisabeth Assayag and Emmanuel Duteil take a tour of France to discover positive and innovative initiatives. Work, education, health... they work in the four corners of the country to change the lines and break the codes: who are these citizens, these companies, these communities that are committed and invent the world of tomorrow? Inspiring portraits and testimonials.


Nadia Auclair, our pitcher of the day, is the president of Carbiolice, a startup that wants to fight plastic pollution by treating non-recyclable plastics. In concrete terms, Carbiolice has developed a unique solution that makes plastic packaging 100% biodegradable. And all this, only thanks to an additive that they have named Evanesto. It's almost magical, isn't it?


Plastic is a material with many uses for the human species, but its slow decomposition and low recycling capacity are sources of huge pollution. To remedy this, the company Carbiolice wants to offer an additive that transforms plastic of vegetable origin into compost, making it biodegradable. Nevertheless, Nadia Auclair, founder of Carbiolice, is keen to stress in this interview with Feat-Y that this solution must be combined with others, present and future, to increase the proportion of recycled or composted plastics in the future.

Winner, in the Coup de Coeur category, of the "10,000 Startups to Change the World" competition organised by La Tribune, the Auvergne-based company Carbiolice adds a patented enzyme to the manufacture of bioplastics, making them 100% compostable and biodegradable. Its breakthrough innovation allows manufacturers to use "clean" packaging while retaining the useful properties of plastic (for yoghurt pots, films, trays, etc.). A possible revolution for the food industry. Translated with (free version)


Carbiolice, a pioneer in sustainable plastics. Protected by some twenty patents, this biotech company based near Clermont-Ferrand aims to develop a new line of 100% compostable and 100% biodegradable bioplastics for the food industry.
