Microwave to Hydrogen and Carbon
for Decarbonization

Mission: Microwave to Molecules for Decarbonization

We believe that hydrogen has the potential to revolutionize transportation while reducing the world's dependence on traditional energy sources. It represents one of the most significant opportunities to impact climate change. Historical production methods have not proven to be environmentally sound or scalable. In contrast, our low temperature Atmospheric Microwave Plasma (AMP) platform is more environmentally friendly and scalable. 

AMP is an efficient alternative for production of zero-emissions hydrogen and syngas to decarbonize natural gas for use across aviation, shipping, and trucking. The carbon savings can be realized economically both at small and large scale production. We aim to contribute to the decarbonisation of the transportation industry, in order to make carbon-neutral goals achievable by 2040.


As a spinoff from MIT in 2018, MAAT Energy was formed with the vision of using microwave to make molecules for decarbonization. Initial molecules are carbon, hydrogen, and carbon monoxide from methane and carbon dioxide.

We are a team of entrepreneurs, scientists and engineers with proven experience in commercialization from concept to full scale in the automobile, cement, power generation, and chemical industries. Our team includes one of the founders of Carbon Recycling International.

We are developing a platform with multiple chemistries, initially focusing on reforming methane and carbon dioxide to produce hydrogen for transport, carbon for tire, and syngas for methanol and jet fuel.
