The Carbon Transformation Imperative

Carbon transformation is a critical strategy for decarbonizing industry, eliminating global emissions and transitioning to a fossil-free future.

What is Carbon transformation?

It’s turning CO2 into products

Carbon transformation means using CO2 to displace fossil fuels as the feedstock for chemicals, materials and fuels. 

At Twelve we do this through CO2 electrolysis. Our industrial scale electrolyzer called Opus, converts CO2, water and renewable energy into hydrocarbons with only water and oxygen as outputs. With this process we can make the same chemicals, materials and fuels from CO2 that are conventionally made from fossil fuels. 

Carbon transformation goes beyond CUUS

Rather than capturing CO2 and storing it in the ground, or utilizing it for industrial purposes such as enhanced oil recovery, carbon transformation is a fundamentally different approach to carbon removal because it uses CO2 as a feedstock, transforming it at the molecular level to make new useful products that are currently made from fossil fuels.

Carbon transformation goes beyond carbon capture, storage and utilization by turning CO2 into new feedstocks for thousands of products that are conventionally made from fossil fuels, like chemicals, materials and fuels.

Decarbonize the chemical industry with CO2 as feedstock instead of fossil fuels

Hydrocarbons are the building blocks for chemicals, materials and fuels that make up the global supply chain. With Twelve’s technology we can now make hydrocarbons from CO2, water and renewable energy, ushering in a paradigm shift for chemical manufacturing.

Carbon transformation is supply chain transformation enabled by electrochemical production

Carbon transformation means replacing the fossil-based products and fuels in supply chains with CO2-based products and fuels. We can do this with Opus, is our industrial-scale CO2 electrolyzer that works like photosynthesis. It's highly modular and integrates seamlessly into existing supply chains.
