Redesigning solutions created by nature to improve plastic recycling efficiency, shaping a society that is less dependent on fossil fuels.
More than 70 million tons of plastic are produced annually. As major companies work to reduce their environmental impact, the need for recycled plastics is increasing faster than production.
Current methods of recycling rely on high temperatures, which degrades the plastic and leaves in additives, reducing the reusability and quality of the final products.
Leveraging design rules encoded by nature, Evozyne is developing high-efficiency and high-stability solutions to enzymatically degrade today’s materials into their building blocks which can be reused for new and more sustainable manufacturing.
