Danimer Scientific | March 09, 2023
Danimer Scientific, Inc. commends the City of Jacksonville for its newly launched pilot program offering organic recycling solutions to restaurants in the Riverside and Avondale areas. Sunshine Organics and Compost, also known as Compost Jax, is partnering with the city to execute the six-month program.
After receiving training on proper diversion procedures, restaurants will have their food waste collected and delivered to the Sunshine Organics and Compost facility by the city every week for six months as part of the program launched on March 1. The accumulated food residues will be transformed into nutrient-rich compost that can be used to replenish soils and support the growth of more food.
Most of Northeast Florida's food waste is in landfills, making up a considerable portion of solid waste. As organic waste decomposes in landfills, it produces hazardous methane that can contribute to climate change. Industrial composting, on the other hand, provides an eco-friendly way to treat organic waste, such as food waste, yard waste, and other organic matter, potentially lengthening the lifespan of landfills by years.
Sunshine Organics and Compost is authorized to process food and yard waste and can accept certified industrially compostable products, including Danimer Scientific's Nodax® PHA. This makes it different from other composting operations in the Jacksonville region. The Nodax® PHA created by Danimer Scientific is appropriate for food packaging applications because it has FDA approval for food contact and can decompose without generating any pollution.

About Origin Materials
Origin Materials, headquartered in West Sacramento, is one of the world's foremost carbon-negative materials firms. The mission of Origin is to facilitate the global transition to sustainable resources. The firm has spent more than a decade developing a platform for converting the carbon present in affordable, abundant, non-food biomass such as sustainable wood wastes into valuable commodities while simultaneously absorbing carbon. Its unique technology platform has the potential to change the manufacture of a vast array of end goods, including clothes, textiles, plastics, packaging, auto components, carpets, and toys, with an addressable market of about $1 trillion. Additionally, the company's technological platform is anticipated to deliver consistent pricing substantially decoupled from the petroleum supply chain, which is more volatile than supply networks based on sustainable wood wastes. The patent-protected drop-in core technology, economics, and carbon effect of Origin are backed by an expanding number of worldwide investors and customers.
