Carbon nanotube membranes for desalination and water treatment

Mattershift is developing tools for molecular factories that can be used to assemble basic building blocks of matter into high value products. This includes for example, converting CO2 from the air into fuels, fertilizers, food, pharmaceuticals, and construction materials, without using fossil fuels as inputs. The company has completed development of its programmable molecular gateway technology with third party verification of its performance. Production is now being carried out at pilot scale.
