Opus 12 has developed a device that recycles CO₂ into cost-competitive chemicals and fuels. Their technology bolts onto any source of CO₂ emissions, and with only water and electricity as inputs, transforms that CO₂ into some of the world’s most critical chemical products. Opus 12 was one of six clean energy startups selected from around the country to be incubated in the first cohort of the prestigious Cyclotron Road program at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. Today, their
commercial operations are in Berkeley, CA.
Etosha Cave, CSO, Nicholas Flanders, CEO, and Kendra Kuhl, CTO, all from Opus 12, gave this illuminating overview of their technology that recycles CO2 back into a carbon feedstock, their work with LanzaTech, White Dog Labs, NREL, Industrial Microbes, and others, how their electrolyzer could double the methane production of any biogas plant, their work with ethylene and ethanol, energy and mass balance for major products, and more, at ABLC Global 2018 in San Francisco
