Product Description

Furfural is a flexible raw material used in significant volumes across the globe including flavors and fragrances, monomers, polymers, and solvents. Produced directly by Origin’s patented technology platform, Origin’s furfural has a carbon-negative footprint and is made from sustainable wood residues rather than fossil resources.

Product Benefits

  • Carbon-negative footprint validated by Deloitte-authored life cycle assessment: Life Cycle Assessment by Deloitte Consulting

  • Cost-competitive with fossil-based furfural

  • Sustainable, drop-in ready, and chemically identical to fossil-based furfural

  • Expected to provide stable pricing largely de-coupled from the petroleum supply chain, which is exposed to more volatility than supply chains based on sustainable wood residues

  • Supports many downstream chemistries and products

  • 100% bio-content
