Over eighty years ago, the rise of synthetic polymers led to one of the most successful original products ever. This product used nothing that we would consider to be technology today. That’s how long it’s been since there have been any material breakthroughs at scale.
For the first time in several generations, we may be on the cusp of another material paradigm that changes everything. This would be a multiplier for the accelerating energy transition from fossils to clean electrons. It would also unlock another dimension in tomorrow’s products that startups today have not had access to.
