AirCarbon™ | Made from carbon capture
AirCarbon™ is a material made by sequestering carbon emissions that would otherwise become part of the air.
Sustainable. While almost all plastics today are made exclusively from oil or other fossil fuels, AirCarbon is different.
AirCarbon is made by combining air with methane-based carbon emissions–carbon that would otherwise become part of the air we breathe–to produce a material that is approximately 40% oxygen from air and 60% carbon and hydrogen from captured methane emissions by weight. By replacing oil with AirCarbon™, we transform the products we use everyday into materials that sequester more greenhouse gas than they emit and actually improve the world–displacing oil, reducing cost, and reducing the amount of carbon in the air.
High-Performance. AirCarbon™ is able to meet the performance requirements of a wide range of applications, including applications currently using fossil fuel-based polypropylene, polyethylene, ABS, polystyrene, and TPU. AirCarbon™ can be used in extrusion, blown film, cast film, thermoforming, fiber spinning, and injection molding applications.

Carbon-Negative. AirCarbon™ has been independently-verified on a cradle-to-grave basis as a carbon-negative material, including all energy, materials, transportation, product use, and end-of-life/disposal associated with the material. Specifically, NSF commissioned Trucost to develop a cradle-to-grave greenhouse gas emissions footprint of AirCarbon, presenting the final results based on standardized cradle-to-grave boundaries determined by NSF, including carbon associated with all energy inputs used to carry out the AirCarbon manufacturing process, as well as material inputs, transportation, packaging, and product end-of-life. The conclusion, based on Newlight’s AirCarbon production process, which uses concentrated methane-based carbon emissions that would otherwise become part of air as an feedstock input: “AirCarbon is a carbon-negative material on a cradle-to-grave basis, as verified by independent third-party analysis performed by Trucost in cooperation with NSF Sustainability.” **Please check labeling or packaging for grade-specific carbon footprint information.
Change the World. Transform the products we use every day into products that reverse the flow of carbon.
