INSILICO: INSILICO – a bio-platform for true plastics circularity

The project is working on engineered enzymes to safely turn plastic waste into raw materials for new high-quality plastic – with lower resource requirements and emissions, at competitive prices.


INSILICO’s expectations from the acceleration programme are to:

  • Structure, know-how and networking to bring the technology to demo-readiness: develop the business plan and iterate on the technology.
