About Dioxycle
Dioxycle is transforming carbon dioxide from waste into a resource. Established in 2021, Dioxycle builds high-performance carbon capture and electrolysis technologies that convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into the world’s most widely used renewable feedstocks, fuels, and commodity chemicals. These outputs not only aim to undercut the cost of fossil fuel incumbents but also abate emissions from the hardest-to-decarbonize sectors like shipping, aviation, and chemical manufacturing. We’re not in it for small wins: our goal is to eliminate gigatons of CO2 emissions.
