MIT spinoff Via Separations scores $38M Series B to decarbonize manufacturing

Ron Miller of TechCrunch reports that MIT spinoff Via Separations has received $38 million in Series B funding.

The C3 Take
  • Via Separations is a startup formed by MIT material science engineers that have found a way to lower the energy intensity of manufacturing which subsequently lowers the costs and the carbon footprint of manufacturing.
  • The company is currently working on three pilot programs and has an ultimate goal of decarbonizing supply chain infrastructure entirely.
  • Private sector innovation, not government regulation, is creating the technologies and solutions that are needed to reduce emissions.

“The Via solution sits in a shipping container in the middle of the manufacturing process and acts as a filtration system for whatever is being produced. Dave uses a pasta pot analogy to describe how the filtering process works. ‘Instead of going into a pot where the water gets boiled off using heat, it goes through a strainer, where we [apply] pressure in order to force it through a filter like a pasta strainer,’ she explained.”
