Who We Are

From a small group of visionary researchers, engineers, and metallurgists, we’re now a team of over 80 professionals, and still growing. A world-class investor syndicate joined us in two investment rounds. Their endorsement of our clean technology and business model fuels our passion to transform how metals are made to decarbonize one of the globe’s biggest sources of CO2 emissions.
