Futurity exists to redefine our relationship with consumption. We're working to change what products are made from, how they’re produced, and how they’re re-used and recirculated post-consumption. Work with us to create products and processes for the best outcome, causing the least harm possible.

We Develop the Future of Materials Using Renewable Resources

We combine biology, design and engineering to create renewable chemicals and advanced materials. We are now researching the development of custom polymers and chemicals using our own next-generation process, working with sustainable plantation forestry, one of New Zealand’s most abundant renewable resources. This is an effort to allow the most forward-thinking companies to help solve the challenges of the future at an industrial scale.

Renewables Benefits

  • Renewable feedstock
  • Low severity processing
  • Dynamic biochemistry
  • Tailored end products

Renewable Materials

We refine woody biomass into its chemical building blocks and then use fermentation pathways and further processing to reassemble them into useful materials and specialty chemicals.

Research & Development

Our dynamic and nimble philosophy toward material development & next generation processing allows us to solve your challenges in a lab environment and quickly work toward scale and commercialisation. Together we can work to design solutions that will provide the next generation of renewable materials. Talk to one of the team to see how we can work together.

We Then Use Those Materials to Pioneer Better Plastics Manufacturing

We are pioneering state of the art renewables manufacturing with established industry experts who have over 40 years experience in technical plastics. Together we provide clients with an innovative and knowledgeable service. Located in Christchurch, New Zealand, our facility processes advanced biomaterials into plastics components for a variety of industries and sectors.

Our Process

We have a database full of renewable plastics to meet a variety of environmental and application performance requirements in a range of industries. We work with customers during the early development stages of a project to refine the part and manufacture design, providing technical advice on renewable polymer selection, tooling design and manufacture, right through to ensuring quality products are consistently produced to a high standard and meeting customer specifications.

With thermoforming, Injection and blow moulding technologies in one world-class facility, we can also offers a comprehensive in-house tool room facility, timely servicing of existing production tools, as well as fast turnaround of tool modifications during design and development project phases.

To Deliver the Most Sustainable Consumer Goods in The World

Futurity have an in-house product design and development team who work closely with our biotechnology and manufacturing divisions to ensure all opportunities for innovation collaboration and customer benefit are realised. We can take customer plans from concept to reality and into commercialisation. Futurity utilise the End to End design philosophy founded in circular thinking. We do not design a product without analysing and improving the entire life-cycle and end-of-life impact before and during release.

We work with you right the way through, from material sourcing to the entire supply chain, ensuring all stakeholders and all points deliver toward material reutilization and recirculation. We optimize our product designs to best suit each unique end-of-life scenario. Depending on the project we take into account resource availability and procurement, market geographies, societal dynamics, infrastructure and legislation as required to try to retain or recover as much embedded material value as possible, with the least energy usage, emissions and impact on the environment as possible. Where necessary we will look to implement the required infrastructure and technology to create closed loop systems.

Our Capabilities

  • Market research
  • Material research
  • Product conceptulisation
  • Prototyping
  • 3D printing
  • Photorealistic rendering
  • Animation
  • Engineering
  • Design for manufacture
