CERT

Made up of scientists and engineers at the University of Toronto, CERT has developed a system to convert CO2 into chemical feedstocks. An XPRIZE finalist, CERT is seeking to construct a field pilot and is seeking about $6 million in funding for capital and development costs, with existing funding from the Canadian and Ontario governments. It has received support from a European oil major and a large tech company. Currently, it is seeking strategic partnerships with emitters such as energy producers or steel and cement manufacturers looking to derive value from captured CO2, as well as petrochemical manufacturers with existing supply chains to sell low-carbon chemical feedstock products. As of now, CERT does not have any customers.
