High-performance materials for a 
low-carbon world.

What is Galvorn?

Galvorn is a next-generation material that pairs giga-level performance with gigaton-plus climate potential.
Grown out of cutting-edge research and commercialization work at Rice University — and further developed with support of the National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Energy, NASA, and the United States Air Force — Galvorn cracks the code on the promise of carbon nanotube structures.

It is available in a variety of form factors and specifications, including yarns / cables, tapes, and mesh / fabrics.

Built for the future.
Here today.

We’re making carbon- and energy-intensive materials obsolete.
Metals such as steel, aluminum, and copper are finite resources, developed with dirty and extractive processes that negatively impact communities and the environment.

The climate crisis, the clean energy transition, and the ‘electrify everything’ movement are driving a massive transformation of industries and infrastructure globally.

Simply making metals “greener” isn’t enough. The future demands a new material that redefines what’s possible. That material is Galvorn.

More is less.

Galvorn is a magical material that defies conventional climate wisdom. That’s because the more of it we produce and use, the less climate impact industries have. Here’s how:

Capturing and storing carbon

As a carbon-based material, Galvorn locks carbon into long-term storage, where it can’t contribute to global warming.

Displacing dirty materials

By displacing steel, aluminum, copper, and other materials with a heavy climate footprint, we’re pushing gigatons of carbon emissions out of global industry.

Diverting methane

By using methane (CH4) as a Galvorn feedstock in the near term, we’re preventing methane from directly entering the atmosphere (where it’s a potent greenhouse gas) and diverting it from combustion (where it would exhaust more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere).

CDR/DAC and renewable natural gas

By using renewable natural gas as a feedstock and, in the longer term, using captured carbon dioxide as technologies such as direct air capture mature and scale, Galvorn production becomes heavily carbon negative.

Renewably powered manufacturing process

Our production process uses electricity; when powered by renewable energy, it has a zero-emissions energy footprint.

Clean H2 byproduct

The primary byproduct of Galvorn production is clean hydrogen, itself a climate-friendly fuel and intermediate feedstock of green ammonia and other fuels.

About DexMat

At DexMat, we’re a climate tech moonshot company that believes carbon is the problem — and the solution. That’s because our flagship material, Galvorn, is made entirely of carbon! We transform hydrocarbons, renewable fuels, and captured carbon into a Space Age material that vastly outperforms traditional alternatives like steel, aluminum, and copper.

It’s the promise of science fiction made into reality, thanks to research by Professor Matteo Pasquali and his team at Rice University — refined and commercialized with support from Shell Ventures, the U.S. Department of Energy, NASA, the National Science Foundation (NSF), the United States Air Force, ARPA-E, and others.

When adopted at scale across industries such as power, aviation, and automotive, Galvorn represents a multi-gigaton carbon reduction impact by creating the building blocks necessary for a cleaner economy.
