Plastic recycling needs a better solution.

9% of plastic is recycled in the United States, a number unchanged over the past 15 years. Most recycled plastic is lower in quality and higher in cost than ‘virgin’ plastics from petrochemicals. Plastics are also the source of significant carbon emissions (~850M tons emitted each year).

We’re fixing this. Our recycling process uses enzymes to break down plastic naturally and efficiently. Unlike recycling today, our process yields virgin-quality, environmentally sustainable, and cost-competitive recycled outputs, truly enabling a ‘circular’ plastics economy.
