Our solid knowledge of catalysis combined with the understanding of plastic compositions at the molecular level allow us to develop the green technologies of the future.
We are developing a plastic-to-methane technology, in which mixed and unsorted plastics can be transformed into grid-compatible methane.
Plastogaz is an EPFL spin-off based in Lausanne, founded in 2020.
Plastic is an essential material in our society. Its excellent properties make it a material of choice in many applications. Unfortunately, plastic consumption inevitably leads to waste that cannot be recycled without high-tech catalytic solutions. Currently, plastic waste is seen as a burden, when it should be seen as a value. Our team aims to restore the reputation of plastic by making its end of life clean, safe and sustainable.
