Genera Secures $118M For Sustainable Packaging Sustainable packaging producer Genera has received more than $118 million in new funding for its first manufacturing facility to produce its Earthable line of sustainable packaging products. The Tennessee-based firm will use grasses and other agricultural crops to make compostable foodservice packaging products like plates, bowls, and takeaway containers at a new facility in Vonore,Tennessee. The Earthable range is designed to meet growing consumer demands for more eco-friendly products in the food industry. Fibres used for the packaging are de- rived from high-yield conservation crops like switch- grass and biomass sorghum. Genera has already begun to work with Tennessee farmers to produce the feed- stock it will use in its new manufacturing facility and is actively seeking additional farm partners in the region. TennEra, an affiliate of the University of Tennessee Research Foundation, has leased its former biorefinery in Vonore, Tennessee, to Genera for the development of the new facility.
