Biodegradable polymers for use across multiple industries

A "100% biodegradable polymer" is one that will 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%.

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