Cleantech Driving a Circular Economy

Genecis’ biological processes convert food waste destined for landfill into valuable materials.

We’re on a mission to drive our world towards a circular economy, where major brands utilize eco-friendly PHA plastics in packaging, food services, agriculture, textiles and many other areas to reduce the 18 billion pounds of plastic polluting our oceans every year.

Plastic, without the pollution.

Our PHBV Plastic has equivalent properties to traditional oil based plastics, without the environmental costs. When the product reaches end of it's useful life it can be composted within a month. If it does find it's way into the ocean, it degrades within a year.
