Better input, thoughtful impact.

Our thoughtful approach to markets, materials, and people leads to a sustainable future for human society.

Markets
Humans cannot address global climate and sustainability concerns, or leave this planet for sustained life elsewhere, without an order of magnitude improvement in how we manage heat.

The management of heat sets limits on:

  • All modes of transportation, especially when using electric propulsion and battery systems.
  • All digital communication and intelligence, which is why the world has moved to the paradigm of data centers—to take advantage of thermodynamics that becomes more favorable when the heat problem can be managed at larger scales.
  • All industrial and manufacturing processes, and the world is introducing more of this thermal risk as we automate and digitize factories, pushing electronics into more harsh use conditions.

Market solutions for heat management have consolidated in the past 60 years, delivering undifferentiated offerings with modest benefits and steep downsides. As performance, user experience, reliability and sustainability are compromised by limitations of conventional TIMs, engineers are looking for new solutions.

Carbice answers to this market need with drastically improved materials science to set a new standard for TIM performance, user experience, reliability and sustainability, and to advance a roadmap that brings the global industry to this standard in the next several decades.

Our world is on a mission to rapidly transition into a sustainable future. A shift to renewable energies instead of fossil fuels can tackle 55% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the other 45% though, are harder-to-reduce emissions associated with goods production and land management. A fundamental change in the way goods are made and used in our society is required to meet sustainability goals. The old ‘take-make-waste’ extractive linear economy has to be transformed into a ‘circular economy’ to use resources efficiently and sustainably.

The electronics industry rejected lead from solder decades ago for health concerns and are beginning to look at the pervasive use of polymers that come from energy-intense processing of petrochemicals and cannot be recycled. Thermoplastic elastomers, which are more readily recycled, have come into play recently to compete with long-standing standards like silicone rubber. However, nothing is more sustainable than simply reducing the use of polymers, which comprise more than 90% of all thermal interface solutions.

The Carbice founder made an intentional decision a decade ago to focus on building the next generation thermal interface materials (TIMs) from recycled aluminum and waste carbon gas. Our Carbice Nanotube Technology (CNT) enables performance and reliability over time to extend goods’ lifespans, and allows easy reuse and re-work to increase the percentage of electronic components that can be disassembled and recycled cost-effectively (our heart is broken by pictures of giant landfills of electronic wastes in poor communities that would not exist if it were cost effective for businesses to recycle). Additionally, Carbice products minimize waste from usage, and can be recycled back to raw recycled aluminum stock at their end-of-life, completely closing the materials life cycle in our factory and for our customers.

The world is going to have to work together for human civilization to survive long-term. At the heart of society’s embrace of the need for diversity is the need to involve the best of all human citizens in the quest to advance for a better future.

“The problem of diversity in corporate America is the problem of exclusion of excellence. So I focus on building the most excellent team…” – Baratunde Cola, Carbice CEO and Founder. 

At Carbice, we believe our social responsibility is to all stakeholders – our employees, customers, investors, and our community.

We passionately believe in the power of the individual. When they are motivated by excitement and purpose they advance their own personal growth every day. And that advances our collective mission. Everyone takes part in the Cabice Magic journey, whether they work directly with us or are indirectly affected by our technologies.

What we believe is reflected in our values: 

  • Serve others
  • Master your mindset
  • Excellence matters
  • Be authentic
  • Work with facts
  • Never stop learning
  • Respect the team
  • Forgive yourself (and others)
  • Gratitude is powerful
  • Enjoy life

We value being thoughtful across everything we do. This culture drives long-term personal satisfaction, environmental responsibility, and produces healthy business results.
