Photocatalysis “lighting up” the next chemical revolution
The chemical industry is the third largest industrial emitter of CO2 generating more than 2.5 gigatons of CO2 each year. Current low-carbon solutions are EXPENSIVE, with green premiums that can increase costs by 100% or more. Our unique photocatalysis technology bridges the gap between CO2 impact and cost by producing carbon-negative chemicals at lower cost or on par with fossil-based incumbents.
Photocatalysis empowers new chemical reactivity for highly efficient chemical processes by enabling low-cost & low-carbon feedstocks, fewer process steps, and room-temperature (vs. 1000oC) reactions. Driven by declining costs of LED and renewable energy, photocatalysis provides a revolutionary pathway to electrify and decarbonize the chemical industry with clean photons. Current solutions include plant-based chemicals & CO2-to-chemicals.
