Newlight Technologies – Aircarbon

October 12, 2020 , 1:30 pm - 1:45 pm CDT

An EarthxTV Worldwide Exclusive Report

ENCORE: 1:30PM – 1:45PM  CDT /  2:30PM – 2:45PM EDT

Duration: 15 minutes

Host: Mark Herrema, Founding Partner and CEO, Newlight Technologies

Newlight Technologies, Inc., a biotechnology company dedicated to making materials that improve the environment, today announces the opening of a new commercial-scale AirCarbon® production facility in Southern California, called Eagle 3, and the launch of two new, regenerative consumer brands made using AirCarbon: Restore™ foodware and Covalent™ fashion.

Newlight has spent over a decade perfecting the production of AirCarbon: a material made by life from the ocean using air and carbon from greenhouse gas.  Newlight is using AirCarbon to replace synthetic plastic and fibers, with a mission to help solve ocean plastic pollution and climate change.

To make AirCarbon, Newlight uses naturally-occurring microorganisms found in the ocean, and recreates ocean conditions on land with saltwater, air, carbon from greenhouse gas, and renewable power.  These ocean microorganisms use air and carbon from greenhouse gas to grow a material inside of their cells: an ocean-degradable, carbon-negative material called AirCarbon, which can be melted into high-performance shapes.

Based in Huntington Beach, California, Eagle 3 is Newlight’s largest commercial production facility to date, and will be used to produce the AirCarbon used in both Restore foodware and Covalent fashion products.
