Company That Produces Chemicals From CO2
A significant step towards clean energy
It’s human nature to think of the future.
Trying to figure out what the future holds is one in a million thoughts that the human brain processes every day.
For some people, though, thinking about the future is not just a passing fantasy but a burning desire to be a part of something big. A golden opportunity to hop on the train to the future before the whole world tries to reserve a seat in it.
Historically, the early adopters have had huge advantages over their competitors who were late to the party.
For example, retailers who started selling online much before their competitors, made a huge profit. We have heard of Amazon’s success story and how Barnes & Noble lost a golden opportunity. In our generation, we can quote early crypto adopters to have had that huge advantage.
For already established enterprises, adapting to future demands is necessary to stay ahead of cutthroat competition and survive.
Twelve — Fueling the Future
Twelve is a chemical technology company based in Berkley, California. The company was founded in 2015. At its core, it's a carbon transformation company.
The words — “Carbon Transformation” might not sound all that fancy and interesting, but I bet once we get into the details, you will be as amused as I was when I read about the innovative solution they have come up with.
Twelve challenges the most threatening issue that mankind faces today — Climate Change.
Mankind, as it has evolved, is dependent on a lot of things for survival on a daily basis. Most of these materials we see and use today are carbon-based. Clothing, Furniture, household machines, etc., are all partly made from carbon.
The source of carbon used in the above-mentioned products is petrochemicals.
Petrochemicals are chemicals manufactured from crude oil and natural gas. That is, petrochemicals are derived from fossil fuels.
Fossil fuels have a lot of disadvantages, but the main ones are,
It creates air pollution
It releases large amounts of CO2, which is a greenhouse gas
It is non-renewable
Now that we know the problem let’s take a look at the solution.
Twelve eliminates the dependency on fossil fuels by producing chemicals out of CO2.
Imagine all the products we use daily that leave a carbon footprint. Production of these materials will now become carbon zero with the revolutionary technology that Twelve uses.
Twelve’s technology mimics that of a plant by using CO2, water, and renewable energy.
Chemicals used to make these daily use products will now be made using this innovative technology, just like plants make food using CO2, water, and sunlight.
Twelve has partnered with Microsoft and Alaska Airlines to provide a sustainable solution to the carbon footprints created by the airline industry.
We know that clean energy is the future.
Even though there has been a significant improvement in terms of using solar and wind energy, the wastage produced in manufacturing these products cannot be ignored.
Twelve is solving the carbon emission problem at its root. It’s set to bring down the carbon footprint of daily use products like plastics, clothes, etc., and create a fossil-free future.
