In 2022, several titles protecting the proprietary PET-degrading enzymes of Carbios were granted in countries of interest such as the USA, as well as in Asian countries including Indonesia, South Korea, China, Japan and India. The company has also obtained grants within its patent families protecting the biodegradable plastics production process, notably the masterbatch containing the enzyme or its production process. Carbios SA, Clermont-Ferrand/France, (and its subsidiary Carbiolice) currently holds 336 titles worldwide divided into 53 patent families.
Over the past 2 years, the focus has been on strengthening the protection of the PET bio-recycling process and its proprietary enzymes. For the coming years, Carbios will continue to consolidate the protection of this process, and that of its PLA biodegradation process, by filing new patent applications. The company will also actively follow up on filed patent applications in order to obtain granted patents.
Since the beginning of Carbios, the R&D and Intellectual Property departments have worked hand in hand to ensure maximum protection of the enzymes and processes. These continued efforts to obtain extensive international protection are crucial to safeguard the innovations and ensure the industrial deployment of the technologies.
Carbios is expanding its intellectual property portfolio in regions and countries where there is strong demand for its technologies, notably in Europe, North America and Asia. In Europe, 40 European titles could be granted in the 39 member states of the European Patent Organization. In North America there are 41 titles pending in the USA and 23 in Canada, while in Asia 152 titles, including 37 in China, 27 in Japan and 24 in India will be granted. The company also has 14 patent applications that may be extended to other countries or regions of the world in the coming years.
