Origin Materials and Packaging Matters Launch Partnership to Develop Advanced Carbon-Negative Packaging Solutions, Building on Existing 10-Year Supply Agreement.

Business Wire Press Release 04/12/2021

  • 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.
