Imagine a future where materials derived from CO2 can be used to enhance every facet of society: from buildings to adhesives, to even our medicine.
Carbon Upcycling Technology is one of the Finalist start-ups of the 2020 Hello Tomorrow Challenge. They use today’s pollution to build the materials of tomorrow.
Their technology and business model?
- capture CO2 emissions from point sources, such as power plants,
- turn it into CO2-derived solid nanoparticles
- sell them as additives for use in the plastics, coatings, epoxy, adhesives, concrete, lithium-ion battery, and pharmaceutical industries, making them both cheaper to produce and more sustainable.
