The stuff we make—from buildings to fashion—is the largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, a whopping 31% to be specific. While manufacturers are working on reducing their carbon footprint via fuel switching and carbon capture, there is much more to do to reach the elusive goal of net-zero emissions across industry.
Fortunately, there are now hard-tech and engineering-based startups tackling every category of product. The SOSV Climate Tech Summit (Oct. 20-21) will use this session to highlight some of their revolutionary approaches and creative solutions from three early stage companies.
- Sublime Systems is decarbonizing cement-making.
- Spintex spins high performance silk fibers without silkworms, and uses dramatically less energy.
- Unspun aims for zero-waste and local production by making custom-fit denims on demand while single-handedly making standardized sizes irrelevant.
