Carbon Upcycling Technologies (CUT) was formed to sequester CO2 emissions in a stable, solid form that could be sold to the market at profit. The company uses an IP-protected process to create graphene nano-platelets using waste CO2 and a cheap carbon feedstock. The product can be used to reinforce construction materials, increase electrical conductivity of plastics, produce water purification membranes, and manufacture high-performance electronics. The lab-scale process has a high proven CO2 uptake. CUT is currently scaling up the process from the bench-top scale of a few grams to a multi-ton industrial scale.
CUT won CAD 500K as a finalist in the CCEMC’s Grand Challenge, selected from over 340 applicants worldwide and has since established relationships with groups in Calgary, Chicago, and Philadelphia. CUT is looking for technical and financial partners as it aims to develop a facility with 10 ton/yr production capacity by Dec. 2016 and generate sustainable revenue by mid-2017.

Carbon Upcycling resolves the unique problem of converting CO2 emissions from a liability to an asset. By chemically reacting the CO2 with a solid carbon feedstock as a secondary feed, CUT reduces CO2 emissions and produces cost-effective nanoparticles that can serve as additives in various industries. Currently, the construction and the plastics industry are confronted with high priced additives that enhance the performance of their base products. By using cheap feedstock to create a similar family of commercially-accepted nanoparticles, CUT creates cost-effective additives for the construction industry to increase the mechanical and tensile strength of their material and for the plastics industry to create products with high electrical conductivity.

We have received strong baseline performance data that validates the performance of our carbon nanoparticles in concrete as well as plastics and are currently awaiting similar results in asphalt and coating related testing. We have also aligned our research efforts with over 6 renowned research groups in Canada and the United States and are looking to enter the market with our CO2-negative fillers commercially by Fall 2017.
