The startup Twelve is brilliantly transforming carbon pollution into jet fuel and plastics

Adele Peters of FastCompany reports on Twelve, a sustainable carbon capture startup.

The C3 Take
  • Twelve uses carbon that is captured at a nearby refinery to create new materials.
  • The company separates CO2 and water molecules with a metal catalyst to create smaller atomic bits that can then be used to make new products such as jet fuel and plastics.
  • Twelve is showing that private sector innovation is key to creating a more sustainable future.

“Twelve has already partnered with the Air Force to make jet fuel from CO2, and it’s worked with Daimler and Procter & Gamble to demonstrate that it can recreate ingredients needed to make car parts and Tide, respectively.”
