About ElectraSteel ElectraSteel is mission-focused on developing
transformational innovations to decarbonize the foundations of our
industrialized economy through novel electrochemistry and
hydrometallurgy to create a positive environmental, societal, and
economic impact. Company's first product to market transforms a
trillion-dollar steel industry that today consumes 7% of the
world's energy using fossil fuels and emits about three gigatons or
10% of carbon dioxide emissions per year. The novel
electrochemical-hydrometallurgical process converts iron ore or
contaminated steel scrap to green iron and steel with no carbon
emissions while reducing overall cost. It is a paradigm shift of
how steel has been made for centuries: from using fossil fuels to
intermittent renewables as an energy source, from thermochemical
reduction to electrochemical reduction, from using specialized ores
to unconventional ores, scrap steel, and waste streams as a
feedstock, from integrated to a distributed manufacturing, and from
creating global to local jobs. While electrifying steelmaking is an
exciting start and the Company's current focus, its
electrochemical-hydrometallurgy innovation platform also enables
carbon dioxide sequestration at gigaton-scale and decarbonization
of industrial sectors beyond steel, which the Company will disclose
in due course.
The potential impact of the ElectraSteel solution is monumental,
which is why eight marquee investors, each with more than a billion
dollars in capital and strategic resources under management, have
partnered with the Company to date.
About ElectraSteel Team & Culture Our team has collectively lived
in over 25 countries and 33 US states and can communicate in 15
languages. Despite working on a large-scale industrial challenge
many of our team members have decidedly non-industrial backgrounds.
Members of Team Electra have background experience in education,
fashion, law, consulting, cosmetology, finance, history, hobby
drone design, professional sports, machining, photography,
chocolatiering, and online arbitrage in addition to science,
technology, engineering, and electrochemistry.
We believe that while our team is our greatest asset, our unique
culture, built on trust, respect, and integrity, sets us apart from
the competition. We value diversity, equity, and inclusion because
the management understands that transformational innovation
requires many perspectives. Our culture fosters collaboration,
patience, and a disciplined approach to innovating around obstacles
while challenging the status quo. Yes, there is
method-to-its-madness (or boldness)! We pursue an evidence-based
development approach grounded in the theory of constraints and
techno-economic analysis. It focuses on finding optimal technical
paths guided by first principles in every aspect of its
development. That is why in less than two years from its founding,
we have demonstrated a transformational approach which others in
the industry long believed couldn't be done!
Make no mistake, ElectraSteel is a fast-paced and intense
environment driven by progress and results. The path ahead is both
uncertain and challenging, so if that sounds scary, this may not be
the place for you. Instead, ElectraSteel seeks those excited by the
challenge who have the required skills and the ability to think
critically to help create transformational innovations that will
decarbonize our planet.
