Annually, our planet grapples with approximately 300 million tonnes of plastic waste, equating to the weight of the entire human population. Since the mid-20th century, we've produced over 8 billion tonnes of non-renewable plastics. Alarmingly, 60% of it ends up polluting our ecosystems. The longevity of this waste in the environment—ranging from centuries in oceans to land—has profound ecological implications.
Avecom stands at the forefront of scientific innovation and environmental sustainability. We are committed to the research and development of next-generation polymers tailored for the plastics and chemical sectors. Avecom has more than 25 years of expertise in optimizing microbial degradation of wastes in soil and water. And by leveraging advanced fermentation technologies, we efficiently convert waste streams into biodegradable and biobased substitutes, thus playing a pivotal role in promoting a balanced bioeconomy.
