Intellectual Property

Safeguarding our know-how

Safeguarding our know-how and our technological advances is a major challenge: our commercial success depends in particular on our ability to obtain patents in order to ensure the protection of our resulting innovations, products and processes. To guarantee the exploitation of our Research and Development results, since the creation of the Company, we have pursued an active policy of securing and strengthening our innovations, through protection of our results from the upstream phase and consolidated improvements made during development.

At the end of 2020, our intellectual property portfolio included 38 patent families, including one under an exclusive worldwide license from the CNRS and University of Poitiers, representing 158 patents filed across the world’s key regions and covering our areas of development of our processes (biodiversity, enzymatic recycling process, biodegradable plastic production process and bioproduction.)






This strategy allows us to guarantee a strategic competitive advantage over sizeable markets to our current and future industrial partners.
