About the company:

Cement is responsible for about the same amount of greenhouse gas emissions as all of the cars on the road today worldwide. Cement has been widely considered one of the most difficult materials to decarbonize and has even been called out as the reason why we need point-source CCS. We have invented a way to make carbon-negative Portland cement that does not rely on point-source CCS and is identical to conventional cement and, most importantly for impact, is lower in cost. Simply put, our process will turn one of the most intractable climate problems into a carbon-negative climate solution.

Company Overview

Founded in 2019, Brimstone developed a breakthrough process to decarbonize cement production, one of the leading drivers of climate change. Our team is now scaling up to refine our process further and to build our first production facilities. We’re assembling an all-star group of sharp, mission-driven, collaborative individuals who take pride in using their diverse skills to contribute to a better world.

If this sounds like you, join us in helping to solve the most urgent, important challenge facing the world today (and have a blast while doing it!).
