announced the appointment of Dr. Robin Gibson as director of Business Development.
“I joined Origin Materials because I'd spent years in the chemical industry looking for sustainable solutions to chemical industry problems,” Dr. Gibson said. “You can find many technical solutions that are sustainable, but very few make sense economically.
"Origin’s technology turns chloromethyl furfural into a disruptive, important molecule with an incredibly wide range of applications in commodity and specialty chemicals," Dr. Gibson said. "Now, because of Origin’s unique process technology, the carbon footprint of the CMF produced is highly negative and, critically, represents a chemical platform that is very cost-competitive with the incumbent petrochem supply chain at scale. It’s an incredibly exciting package.”
“Robin’s deep experience in the chemical industry, combined with his passion for bringing sustainable, economical chemistries to market, make him an ideal fit for Origin as we advance our mission to help the world’s companies decarbonize,” Origin Materials CEO John Bissell added.
