Origin Materials and Packaging Matters Launch Partnership to Develop Advanced Carbon-Negative Packaging Solutions, Building on Existing 10-Year Supply Agreement.
- Packaging Matters and Origin Materials will partner to develop advanced packaging materials, including polyethylene furanoate, “PEF,” a next-generation polymer. The project will leverage Origin Materials’ expertise with FDCA, a chemical from which PEF is made.
- Packaging Matters will transition its virgin petroleum-based PET purchases to sustainable carbon-negative PET from Origin Materials. Origin Materials’ sustainable carbon-negative PET is physically and chemically identical to petroleum-based PET and equally recyclable.
- Origin Materials, the world’s leading carbon-negative materials company, will leverage its patented technology platform, which turns cellulose from sustainable wood residues into cost-advantaged, carbon negative materials that reduce the need for fossil resources.
