Product Description

PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is a versatile polymer with countless applications including packaging, textiles, car parts, carpeting, toys, and construction materials. Origin PET is made from carbon-negative CMF, which is produced from sustainable wood residues using Origin’s patented technology platform.

Product Benefits

  • Carbon-negative footprint validated by Deloitte-authored life cycle assessment

  • Cost-competitive with fossil-based PET

  • Drop-in ready material, physically and chemically identical to fossil-based PET

  • Equally recyclable compared to fossil PET

  • 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 circular economy vision with key added benefit of a significantly reduced carbon footprint

  • Up to 100% bio-content
