Over 9 million tons of plastic waste end up in the ocean every year.
Over 700 species of marine animals, including endangered ones, are reported to have eaten or been entangled in plastic.
Scientists think that the amount of plastic in the ocean might TRIPLE by 2050.
The plastic waste crisis in the marine ecosystem is a problem that impacts all of us and not just life below the surface. Be part of the solution and take action now. Together we can protect our planet, preserve our oceans, and provide a safe and healthy environment for humankind.
CJ PHACT is a 100% bio-based polyester produced by fermentation.
Using CJ Bio’s innovative fermentation technology, PHACT is a 100% bio-based, marine biodegradable plastic.
PHACT is an eco-friendly material that provides a solution to address plastic waste and is capable of all modes of biodegradation including marine, soil, home, and industrial composting.
PHACT is our brand of Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA). PHAs are a family of biobased
and biodegradable polyesters made by bacterial fermentation. Based on leading-edge strain and metabolic engineering,
our biopolymer solutions offer attractive, sustainable alternatives to petrochemical-based materials. Our unique technology platform enables
PHA biobased polymers to meet a variety of performance requirements—whether you’re seeking to increase bio content,
meet a biodegradation specification, or increase durability and flexibility.
CJ Bio develops innovative, biobased polymer solutions that enhance performance and add value
for a wide range of industrial and consumer products. What sets CJ apart is world-scale biotech assets with
a world-class technology portfolio to enable circular and sustainable solution.
Our first commercial production facility is up and
running and our continued expansion plans are in place!
