Samsara Eco

2022 2022 Winner | Venture Winner Science Start-ups (Falling Walls Venture)

Samsara Eco has developed a revolutionary platform technology that recycles plastics (e.g. PET, Nylon, Polyurethane, Polycarbonate, etc.) using proprietary enzymes. Samsara’s enzymatic processes break down plastics (polymers) to their original building blocks (monomers) for reuse in manufacturing new virgin-quality plastics, or upcycling to more valuable commodities. This is infinite recycling.

Unlike current recycling technologies, the process is economical, with a low carbon footprint, and produces food-grade recycled plastics with the same structural integrity as virgin plastics. The technology allows for the effective recycling of challenging plastics, including coloured plastics, multi-layer plastics, mixed plastics and textiles. With Samsara technology, we never need to make plastic from fossil fuels again.
