Mosaic Materials is an Alameda, CA, based small business developing a carbon capture technology to address global warming and climate change through direct air capture (DAC) of carbon dioxide. At the heart of Mosaic’s technology are metal-organic framework (MOF) solid sorbents that increase the efficiency and reduce the cost of carbon capture by ~50% relative to competing technologies. Mosaic is currently scaling production and implementation of our solid sorbent-based DAC technology and looking for highly motivated, curious individuals to join our team. Mosaic is currently rapidly scaling production and implementation of our direct air capture technology around the world.
Mosaic Materials is now part of Baker Hughes Baker Hughes has operations in over 120 countries as a leading partner within the energy industry. Baker Hughes is committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Mosaic Materials and Baker Hughes are looking for the right people to help us achieve this goal.
