We’re catalyzing new heights in the new carbon economy


SkyNano was founded in 2017 as a spin-out of Vanderbilt, and incubated at the Department of Energy funded Innovation Crossroads program at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.  We’ve also been supported by:

Our technology has been featured in many peer-review scientific papers, received recognition from a 2020 R&D100 award, a 2021 TechConnect Defense Innovation Award, 2022 Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Award, the 2023 Knoxville Traction Award and was recognized with a 2019 Forbes 30 Under 30 award to our Co-Founder and CEO Dr. Anna Douglas. In fact, both SkyNano founders are Forbes 30 Under 30 innovators, as Prof. Cary Pint was awarded the recognition in the inaugural year of the awards. 

SkyNano is a science-based technology company focused on commercializing a free-market solution to carbon pollution.

We have developed a novel electrochemical manufacturing technology for the capture and conversion of CO2 from various sources (atmospheric, concentrated, flue gas) into valuable carbon-based materials including our flagship product, carbon nanotubes.
