Company mission: Industrial separation processes account for 15% of the world’s energy consumption and are responsible for 16% of CO2 emissions. This is because energy-intensive and century-old technologies are still used as industrial standard.

The Osmoses team developed a clean solution to tackle this challenge: polymer materials that operate as molecular filters and allow revenue increase for our customers while significantly increasing environmental sustainability. Our membrane technologies can transform the way chemical separations are performed today and disrupt some of the biggest markets worldwide, dramatically reducing industrial energy consumption while accelerating the adoption of alternative energy sources.

Osmoses recently raised $3M+ venture and non-dilutive funding to grow our team. In the fall of 2022, we will be moving into our brand new, state-of-the-art research facility in Kendal Square, Cambridge that can accommodate more than 10 full-time product development scientists and engineers.
