Carbios CEO Emmanuel Ladent said: “Being a player in sustainable development should not be limited to offering technological solutions with low environmental impact, however innovative they may be.

“The way we see our role as a sustainable development player must apply to all our activities: we want and must be exemplary in terms of environmental, social and governance practices, business ethics and the involvement of all our stakeholders.”

In October this year, Carbios received building permits and operating authorisation for a PET recycling plant.

The plant is planned to be built in Longlaville (54) in the Grand-Est region of France on a 13.7ha site adjacent to the existing PET production plant of Indorama Ventures, its strategic partner. The total investment in the site is estimated to be €230m ($253.52m).
