Re-imagining waste CO2 as a resource

It is our vision for the world to see waste CO2 as a feedstock, as an opportunity, rather than a liability. Our co-founder, Elvis Cao, landed on three 30 Under 30 lists including Forbes 30 Under 30 in Energy. He was also twice selected as one of the five finalists in the Young Champions of the Earth Competition by the United Nations Environment Programme (2020, 2019). He is a Lindau Nobel Alumnus, a BP Future Energy Leader, and a member of the Technical Working Group for Energy Transition for the High-Level Dialogue on Energy by the United Nations (UN) (2021).
