We're Twelve, the carbon transformation company, a new kind of chemical company built for the climate era. Our breakthrough technology eliminates emissions by turning CO2 into essential products that today are made from fossil fuels. We call it carbon transformation. We're reinventing what it means to be a chemical company, on a mission to create a climate positive world and a fossil free future.
Gradient
Gradient
14 jobs
Gradient’s mission is to cool the world by transforming every home to be more comfortable and healthy for the people who inhabit it — without compromising the environment. Today, heating and cooling equipment emits more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation sector, and expansion in the use of cooling is projected to double these emissions in the next 30 years. However, comfortable buildings are critical for health and productivity, especially among communities that are vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Gradient’s vision is a future where everyone has access to comfortable buildings that are fully decarbonized. Our launch product is a direct-to-consumer high-efficiency and low-carbon heat pump.
Brimstone

Cement is responsible for about the same amount of greenhouse gas emissions as all of the cars on the road today worldwide. Cement has been widely considered one of the most difficult materials to decarbonize and has even been called out as the reason why we need point-source CCS. We have invented a way to make carbon-negative Portland cement that does not rely on point-source CCS and is identical to conventional cement and, most importantly for impact, is lower in cost. Simply put, our process will turn one of the most intractable climate problems into a carbon-negative climate solution.
Liminal’s proprietary ultrasound and machine learning analytics platform, EchoStat®, delivers advanced inspection and process control throughout multiple manufacturing stages. EchoStat provides a non-destructive look inside battery cells, offering a unique and comprehensive analysis of each cell’s physical and electrochemical condition during production. Our patented process-control and process-enabling solutions are designed for customers to manufacture batteries with best-in-class performance, reliability, and safety while reducing overall costs.
Sublime Systems is developing a breakthrough process to make carbon-neutral cement. The technology replaces the industry's legacy fossil-fuel intensive thermal calciner process with an electrochemical process that produces carbon-neutral lime 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).
Antora Energy is electrifying heavy industry with zero-carbon heat and power. We make it possible and profitable to fully rely on renewable energy for industrial processes. Antora Energy'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. This thermal energy is then delivered to customers as electricity or industrial process heat up to 1500°C, on demand. In short, Antora Energy turns sunshine and wind into 24/7 heat and power, cheaper than fossil fuels. Our future hinges on heavy industry. Antora Energy’s technology eliminates the need to burn fossil fuels for industrial heat and power, the biggest source of greenhouse gasses on earth. We are growing our company with people who put team and mission first, value connection through laughter and joy, and build with humility and openness. Join our team and do the most fulfilling and impactful work of your life on climate change.

Activate empowers scientists to reinvent our world and address climate change by bringing their research to market. The Activate Fellowship provides the funding, technical support, networking, community, and time that these scientists need at the outset of their entrepreneurial journey. Our team brings a diversity of experience and a deep track record to helping our fellows bridge the science-to-market gap. We support up to 40 new Activate Fellows each year through communities in Berkeley, Boston, New York, and across the U.S. through Activate Anywhere. By 2025, we plan to support 100 new fellows each year. Activate was founded in 2015 by entrepreneurs, scientists, and investors, and our entrepreneurial fellowship model originated at Cyclotron Road, a division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and an Activate partner.
CalWave

6 jobs
CalWave Power Technologies provides a solution to harness the renewable power of ocean waves to produce electricity and freshwater. Our technology is a novel Wave Energy Converter (WEC) that is simple and scalable. Our innovative approach was inspired by the ability of a muddy seafloor to effectively absorb over passing ocean waves within only a few wavelengths. Our patented solution operates submerged, allowing it to survive stormy seas while causing no visual pollution or posing any collision danger.
Sync Computing is a developer of an optimization processing unit designed to eliminate some of society's profound problems. The company's optimization processing unit is an algorithm in hardware form and solves combinatorial optimization problems that exist in industries such as telecom, pharma, finance, logistics, those that rely on machine learning, enabling organizations and communities to solve optimization problems effectively and efficiently.
Sepion is an advanced materials company offering a platform suite of highly-tunable nanoscale membranes for multiple industrial markets including batteries, electrowinning, and water treatment. We strive to deliver science-based solutions that create massive economic value while enabling measurable climate change mitigation.
