Carbon Upcycling Technologies (“CUT”) was formed to use the pollution of today to build the materials of tomorrow by converting CO2 gas into solid products. CUT sells advanced solid products derived from greenhouse emissions and cheaply available solids. Since 2014, CUT has scaled its ability to capture CO2 emissions from point sources, such as power plants, by over a million times and has technically validated the performance of its end products in over 10 different industrial markets. Through its portfolio of CO2-derived solid nanoparticles, CUT has technically validated its solutions for use in the plastics, coatings, epoxy, adhesives, concrete, lithium-ion battery, and pharmaceutical industries. CUT commercialized a corrosion-resistant coating, utilizing its nanoparticles, in 2017, becoming the youngest CO2 utilization company to generate commercial revenue (&l;2.5 years since inception) and has since been confirmed as one of the top CO2 utilization companies in the world as one of the 10 Carbon X-Prize Finalists. CUT has been named as a Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label recipient, a funding recipient of Fundación Repsol Entrepreneurs Fund, and a winner of the 2019 76West Clean Technology Competition.
Boston Materials empowers leaders in the electronics, transportation, and energy sectors to overcome their design limitations with new materials. The company's patented Z-axis Fiber is a lightweight, corrosion-resistant material with exceptional energy-diffusion capabilities (including thermal, electrical, and structural loads.) It is created entirely from reclaimed carbon fiber, allowing for high-performance, high-volume materials and components with the lowest possible carbon footprint. Key products include materials and components for electronics thermal management, fuel cells, and vehicle lightweighting.
At Leading Edge Equipment Technologies, we have built a drop-in wafer manufacturing technology – compatible with existing cell manufacturing lines – that reduces the most cost, capital, and carbon-intensive step of solar panel manufacturing by up to 40 percent: the production of a silicon wafer. Today, the solar industry uses a seven-step process to make wafers, wire-sawing and processing large silicon bricks grown from large, energy-intensive furnaces. This process wastes over half of the silicon ingot, consumes diamond-coated wire, and constitutes over 80 percent of the panel’s final carbon footprint. Leading Edge has developed a two-steps process that directly makes single-crystal silicon wafers without the excessive waste, and using only one-third of the energy per furnace. Even more critically, Leading Edge wafers have the superior quality to enable a “drop-in” up to five percent power increase with commodity solar panel technology. By enabling low cost and higher efficiency, Leading Edge’s breakthrough Floating Silicon Method™ technology gives customers a true double-win.
