Cuberg
Cuberg
23 jobs
Cuberg is commercializing a next-generation battery to power the future of electric mobility. The battery delivers a generational improvement in energy density and safety compared to the best lithium-ion batteries in the world today. The technology, based on a groundbreaking non-flammable liquid electrolyte combined with a lithium metal anode, fully leverages the robust lithium-ion manufacturing base to minimize time to market. Cuberg's product is ideally suited to power the next generation of electric vehicles on the ground and in the air.
Fervo Energy is a next-generation geothermal developer generating clean power in new places. Fervo Energy commercializes proprietary technology to own, develop, and operate geothermal assets as the dispatchable foundation for a 100% clean energy 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.
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).

Nitricity is an energy company that is currently developing a system to produce carbon-free fertilizer. Its technology can produce ready-to-use nitrogen with only air, water, and renewable electricity. We produce both nitric acid and ammonia, which can be used separately or combined to produce ammonium nitrate fertilizer.
Cypris Materials is developing a new generation of sustainable color that broadens the color gamut while simplifying manufacturing, application and formulation.
AeroShield Materials has developed a nanoporous form of glass that is one of the most insulating materials in the world. Integrating this material as an alternative to gas-fills in traditional windows offers 50 percent more insulation than traditional windows, but with a payback period up to five times faster than comparable performance products, creating more affordable and efficient buildings.
MicroByre
MicroByre
5 jobs
MicroByre is a platform for bacterial domestication. Their automated characterization pipeline gathers the oft-overlooked data that highlights unleveraged bacteria that meet functional industrial criteria. That is, they rapidly find the bacteria with naturally unfussy eating habits and evolution-honed metabolisms that have the potential to convert unrefined biomasses into commodity chemicals at vastly improved efficiencies compared to extant fermentation processes. They select from these functionally de-risked bacteria those which can be directly genetically modified to improve their cost profiles — even if they have never been engineered before. The data from our unique characterization pipeline informs the minimally precise genetic modifications necessary to increase pliability and yield, eliminate nutritional additives, maximize feedstock utilization, and improve contamination tolerance & phage resistance. MicroByre gives biomass conversion a truly competitive edge against petrochemical synthesis.
