What we do

Putting CO₂ emissions to work

We have developed a device that recycles CO₂ into cost-competitive chemicals and fuels. Our 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. We can reduce the carbon footprint of the world’s heaviest emitters, while creating a new revenue stream from what is discarded today as a waste product.

Our story

Out of the lab and into industry

The Jaramillo Group at Stanford University is recognized as a world leader in CO₂ electrocatalysis, and Opus 12’s technical co-founders were part of the initial foundation of the CO₂ lab during their graduate studies. There, they developed key methods for studying CO₂-reducing catalysts and reactions, and published seminal discoveries on the breadth of products that is possible to reduce from CO₂.

In 2015, Dr. Kendra Kuhl and Dr. Etosha Cave were ready to translate their fundamental discoveries out of the lab and into industry, and they co-founded Opus 12 with Nicholas Flanders, a fellow Stanford graduate student and experienced entrepreneur with a foundational career in cleantech.
