Origin Materials, a California-based company, is expected to complete construction, commissioning, and start-up of its new $130 million plant this summer. The facility, called “Origin 1”, is located at the Arlanxeo site on Vidal Street in Sarnia and will employ about 50 workers. It is the company’s first commercial manufacturing facility and will be used to turn biomass, such as wood residues and cardboard, into building-block chemicals for making plastic, textiles, car parts, and other products.

In 2017, Sarnia-based Bioindustrial Innovation Canada invested $250,000 in Origin Materials as part of the Centre for Commercialization of Sustainable Chemistry Innovation (COMM SCI) to fund future economic development in the region and develop a bio-hybrid chemistry cluster.

In 2022, the company was awarded Alternative Fuels and Chemicals Coalition Global Bio-based Economic Performance Award for “advancing science and contributing to the production and commercialization of industrial biotechnology products.”
