Newlight Technologies

What if we could capture carbon that would otherwise become a part of the air, and use it to make materials that would otherwise be made from oil? At Newlight, we believe that the most sustainable way to reduce the amount of carbon in the air is to use greenhouse gas as a clean, cost-effective resource for the production of commercially useful materials. Founded out of Princeton University and Northwestern University in 2003, Newlight has developed, patented, and commercialized the world's first commercially-scaled carbon sequestration technology able to produce a high-performance thermoplastics that can match the performance of oil-based plastics and out-compete on price. Our mission is to replace oil-based plastics with AirCarbon on a global scale, using carbon that would otherwise go into the air to replace oil, and reducing the amount of carbon in the air on a market-driven basis.
