Find out more about CO2 Bioclean:


We use carbon emissions

to produce biodegradable biopolymers

to replace highly pollutant plastic materials.


  • Novel business model enabled by a patented fermentation technology to produce 100% biodegradable textile fibers from CO2 emissions.
  • The mission of CO2BioClean is making valuable biodegradable biopolymers well-available by the efficient conversion of CO2 emissions.
  • We aim to contribute towards a plastic-pollution free planet by 2030, while creating a relevant impact on reducing industrial emissions.


  • CO2BIOCLEAN business model consists in selling technology licenses for production of biopolymers to a CO2 decentralized sourcing network and distribution and sale of valuable polymers.
  • Our technology creates value by interconnecting the value chain of CO2 industrial emissions with plastics conversion. In this sense CO2BioClean represents an example of industrial innovation.
  • The CO2 emissions are treated through CO2BioClean Technology at licensors plants, therefore CO2bioClean will outsource manufacturing operations but will own in-house distribution operations.
