Biodegradable polymers for use across multiple industries

There are already polymers that are 100 % biodegradable. A "100% biodegradable polymer" is one that well be completely turned into carbon dioxide, humus, and water by soil microorganisms. Genecis produces biodegradable polymers called PHA or PHBV (poly hydroxybutyrate-co-hydroxy valerate). Genecis' biodegradable polymers are synthesized by microorganisms and have received a lot of interest. In a large-scale decomposition experiment, the PHBV film decomposed, and in the research lab control compositing test, the rate of microbial degradation was 81 percent.

Genecis has developed the first budget PHA polymer for commercial application by using food waste for disposal.
