Via Separations is enabling industrial decarbonization with its novel chemistries that allow manufacturing facilities to slash their energy consumption while making more product. Targeting the 12% of US energy consumption that is wasted each year separating chemicals, Via reduces the load of the process by 90%, electrifies the most energy-intensive step in chemical production, and generates additional revenue for the customer. Today, Via is deploying its technology in pilot trials at pulp & paper facilities to eliminate 100 million metric tons of CO2 by 2050. Via’s innovation is a highly selective and robust membrane filter that replaces the energy inefficient heat-based separations in industrial processes. Spun out of MIT’s Department of Material Science & Engineering, Via has scaled up the technology by more than 10 million times and demonstrated working prototypes at commercial scale.Something looks off?
