Origin Materials and Kuraray enter partnership to commercialize carbon-negative polymer materials

By Mary Page Bailey |

Origin Materials, Inc. (West Sacramento, Calif.) and Kuraray Co. (Tokyo) announced a strategic partnership to commercialize advanced carbon-negative materials for diverse polymer applications.

As part of the strategic partnership, Kuraray signed a capacity reservation agreement with Origin Materials to purchase sustainable, carbon negative intermediate chemicals used in the large-scale synthesis of many polymers, including PTA, PET, and polyamide. The materials from Origin will enhance Kuraray’s mission to develop innovative solutions with unique products and cleaner technologies to improve the natural environment and enhance quality of life for people everywhere.

Origin’s patented technology platform, which turns the carbon found in sustainable wood residues into useful materials, can help revolutionize the production of a wide range of end products and supports industry’s transition to sustainable materials and lower GHG emissions.

“We are thrilled to partner with Kuraray, a leading global manufacturer with a deep commitment to the highest standards for performance and sustainability,” said Rich Riley, Co-CEO of Origin Materials. “Together we will bring to market carbon negative materials that will play a key role in reducing the climate impact of a wide array of specialty chemicals and materials. We look forward to supporting Kuraray’s sustainability journey during this ‘once in a planet’ transition.”
