Antora Energy delivers zero-carbon industrial heat and power to heavy industries that are more reliable than fossil fuels. Antora’s thermal energy storage soaks up excess solar and wind electricity and uses it to heat blocks of carbon so they glow like inside a toaster.
Developer of carbon dioxide recycling devices designed to turn CO₂ into cost-competitive chemicals and fuels. The company's devices make products from recycled emissions and renewable electrons, enabling industries to reduce the carbon footprint while creating a new revenue stream from waste products.
Found Energy is building clean energy delivery platforms capable of replacing fossil fuels for heavy industries ranging from aluminum smelting (3% of global CO2 emissions) to fertilizer production (2% of global CO2 emissions) to maritime shipping (3% of global CO2 emissions). Building off technology developed at MIT that enables metallic aluminum to split water, our energy delivery systems safely generate hydrogen and industrial heat on-site at >5x the volumetric energy density of liquid hydrogen and >3x that of methanol and ammonia. By integrating storage, transport, and generation into a single package, our technology solves some of the biggest pain points in renewable energy transportation and storage. At Found Energy, we believe in securing a livable and equitable future for our planet, and we are looking for partners who are motivated by this goal to join us.
Sublime is developing a breakthrough process to make low-carbon cement. The technology replaces the industry's legacy fossil-fuel-intensive thermal calciner process with an electrochemical process that produces low-carbon cement at ambient temperatures with renewable electricity. Sublime was started in 2020, as a spin-out of Yet-Ming Chiang's lab at MIT (Form Energy, A123, American Superconductor, 24M, Desktop Metals).
Sonera Magnetics develops a technology for high-performance, non-invasive brain-computer interfaces to democratize access to the brain. Its core technology enables them to detect signals from the brain at performance levels comparable to the best diagnostic tools that rely on superconducting sensors. It can detect high-quality magnetic signals from neurons firing in the brain using a non-invasive, low-cost, and low-power system - enabling a practical brain-computer interface. Sonera’s portable brain imaging systems can be used to provide concordant evidence for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders, such as epilepsy and dementia. The company was founded in 2018 by Nishita Deka, Dominic Labanowski, and Sayeef Salahuddin in Berkeley, California.
PolySpectra transforms 3D printing from a prototyping aid into a production manufacturing tool. PolySpectra makes functional materials for advanced additive manufacturing. The company uses light-activated catalysts to 3D print advanced functional materials. Its modular platform enables us to deliver materials with a broad spectrum of tailored properties from a single chemical system. PolySpectra helps inventors, designers, and engineers make their ideas real. Founded in 2016 by Raymond Weitekamp, PolySpectra is headquartered in Berkeley, California.
