Corporate Business/Partners

Commercial Launch of EVANESTO®

Research Strategy

To obtain information regarding the launch of EVANESTO® by Carbios, we first conducted a thorough search through the company website for any information regarding the launch date of the product or its availability in the American market. We searched through sections such as the company's technology, news publications and press releases, media articles, and the 2020 financial calendar. Through this strategy, we hoped to find information about the launch date of the new product or any related information. This strategy yielded no result as we found no such information about the product.

Next, we expanded our search to the public domain and searched through various bio-related media publications such as Business Wire and Bloomberg, news articles such as bio-plastic news on Forbes and Plastic Insight, and other research reports. We hoped to find any recent publication about the date set aside by Carbios to launch EVANESTO® or when the product will be available in the market. This strategy also yielded no result as most of the information identified was about the announcement of the product.

Lastly, we consulted various trusted business directories such as Crunchbase and Craft.co with the hope of finding any existing details about the launch date for EVANESTO®. This was because the business directory sources also provide the latest news, data, or insight about companies. We hoped to find any recent announcements made by the company about its new product launch. This step also yielded no results, as the information we obtained was already known. We, therefore, concluded that there is no information about the launch date of EVANESTO® or about its availability in the American market that is present in the public domain.

Garbo srl

Ioniqa

Research Strategy

To identify actual competitors of Carbios, we identify a Carbios publication on Forbes containing a list of its competitors based on the similarity in technology produced by the companies. Furthermore, we analyzed the various company technologies from their website to confirm that they share similar technology with Carbios. Lastly, we thoroughly scrutinized the website of the various competitors with particular attention paid to their PET depolymerization technique/process to find out the method behind each. From our search, we realized that BioCellection is the only competitor who shares similar PET depolymerization method (plastic-eating enzymes or bacteria) with Carbios. In contrast, the rest of the competitors applied other chemical and mechanical processes to achieve a similar goal.
