Cleantech Driving a Circular Economy

Genecis’ patented 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.

Leverage our technology and team to benefit the planet, and your bottom line.
