CERT is a multidisciplinary team with expertise in chemistry, materials science and mechanical engineering scaling up CO2 utilization technology developed at the University of Toronto.

As one of the finalists in the $20M NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE, CERT has invented a technology that efficiently converts CO2 emissions into renewable fuels and chemical feedstocks using only water and electricity. Our process effectively closes the carbon cycle while producing valuable chemicals and materials.
