WEST SACRAMENTO, California — Origin Materials announced the successful conversion of wood residue feedstock into sustainable intermediates at Origin 1, its first commercial-scale plant. …John Bissell, Co-CEO said, “This marks an evolution from the corn starch-based production we have employed since commencement in October of last year. We are using locally sourced, Forest Stewardship Council controlled wood residues produced by a sawmill as a byproduct of lumber and wood flooring production. From that… we produced our sustainable intermediates, which can be used to make a wide variety of products that normally would be made from petroleum. Products like apparel and textiles, plastics, tires and automotive components, fuels, and high-performance polymers.” …“We look forward to continued progress in scaling our biomass conversion technology in support of our mission to enable the world’s transition to sustainable materials.”
