Innovative chemical processes for a sustainable world.


Turn Carbon dioxide into Fuels using the power of the sun.


Solistra’s patented photocatalysts are specialized light-activated nanomaterials that drive the conversion of carbon dioxide into value-added liquid fuels.



Plug and play your CO2 away.

Equivalent to taking 1000 cars off the road each year. Connects directly to flue gas stream. Up to $7M in annual revenue from product sales. Modular for customizability.
