Interiors & Sources Magazine | May 29, 2014

With 7 to 8 percent of global oil and gas production used to make plastic, AirCarbon-produced by Newlight Technologies-has been created to replicate the performance and price of oil-based plastics and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 

Newlight uses a biocatalyst to convert air containing greenhouse gases (like methane and carbon dioxide) harvested from farms and landfills into plastic. This new technology gives KI-who is the exclusive provider of AirCarbon in the contract furniture industry-the ability to produce the world's first carbon-negative chair.
