New Technology Creates Carbon-Negative Plastic from Methane

California-based startup Newlight Technologies is using captured methane gas from dairy farms and turning it into AirCarbon, a durable and versatile plastic that can be used in everything from furniture and food containers to auto parts. AirCarbon removes more carbon from the atmosphere than its manufacturing emits, making it a carbon-negative material. AirCarbon chairs from furniture maker KI and cell phone cases for Virgin Mobile are expected to arrive sometime this year.
