Scaling production of innovative materials

Ara Partners invests in companies that use novel process technologies, waste to value manufacturing, and high efficiency manufacturing to reduce emissions while producing chemicals and materials at attractive prices. These new processes improve sustainability and reduce operating costs, creating profits and a low-carbon future.

Opportunities for decarbonizing chemicals and materials manufacturing

The chemicals and materials industry must remake itself in order to reduce landfill waste and greenhouse gas emissions. Target companies may achieve these objectives in a number of ways:

Waste streams can be used to manufacture recycled plastics, green fuels, and chemicals.

Novel process technologies can reduce or eliminate carbon emissions associated with the manufacturing of chemicals and fuels.

More efficient plant designs can dramatically reduce energy consumption and associated emissions.

Advanced manufacturing processes can enable the production of green fuels and chemicals at sharply reduced cost.
