    Project Overview

    Genecis Bioindustries Inc., in partnership with StormFisher, is working on a project to develop, scale and integrate a novel biotechnology platform to upcycle food waste into premium sustainable bioplastics. The company will integrate a demonstration-scale technology unit with an anaerobic digestion (AD) plant to convert organic waste feedstock into high-value PHA (polyhydroxyalkanoates) bioplastics, the world’s best alternative to petroleum plastics. 

    Genecis’ platform leverages existing infrastructure to upcycle waste into high value materials and chemicals, contributing to a circular and bio-based economy. The demonstration will occur at the StormFisher Resource Recovery Centre in Drumbo, Ontario designed to recycle discarded packaged food and municipal green bin waste.
