For the industrial sector to embrace low-carbon business models, the nation needs innovative, cost-competitive carbon-removal technologies. With help from DOE SBIR as well as private investment and other government grants, OPUS 12, a Berkeley-based startup is playing a major role in this incredible challenge. If implemented on large scale, Opus 12 core invention holds the promise to address nearly 10% of global carbon emission by recycling industry carbon dioxide emission into valuable chemicals and fuels.
