France – Carbios and Technip FMC have recently announced that Technip FMC’s operating center in Lyon, France will be assisting Carbios to build a plant that demonstrates Carbios’ Enzymatic Recycling Process.

The technology uses proprietary enzymes to recycle waste PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastics into monomers ready for repolymerisation into PET with the same technical and physical properties as virgin PET. This collaboration is an important step in the demonstration of the technology and potential future commercialisation.

Technip FMC will provide advisory, engineering, procurement and construction supervision services for this plant, which will be located close to Lyon. Construction will start later this year with first operations expected to begin in 2021.

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

Alain Francois, Managing Director of Technip FMC’s Lyon office, said: “We are pleased to work with Carbios to demonstrate their plastic recycling technology. This collaboration recognises our technological know-how and leading-edge approach to commercialising new processes, as well as underlining our ambition to provide services in the field of sustainability and the circular economy.”

Jean-Claude Lumaret, CEO of Carbios, noted: “Carbios’ collaboration with Technip FMC has been very successful over the past few years and we are delighted to extend this valuable partnership to the construction of our demonstration plant. This agreement, which will leverage both parties’ expertise, supports our common vision to enhance the sustainability of the plastic industry. Carbios’ technology has proven to be a superior process that efficiently recycles all PET-based plastics. To ensure its implementation at large-scale, it is key for operators to gain insights into operational conditions. Our collaboration with Technip FMC aims to address this need through a demonstration plant.”
