About Joule
Joule has pioneered a CO2-to-fuel production platform, effectively reversing combustion through the use of solar energy.
The company’s platform applies engineered catalysts to continuously convert waste CO2 directly into renewable fuels
such as ethanol or hydrocarbons for diesel, jet fuel and gasoline. Free of feedstock constraints and complex processing,
Joule’s process can achieve unrivaled scalability, volumes and costs without the use of any agricultural land, fresh water
or crops. Joule is privately held and has raised over $160 million in funding to date, led by Flagship Ventures. The
company operates from Bedford, Massachusetts and The Hague, The Netherlands, with production operations in Hobbs,
New Mexico. Additional information is available at
