CoolComposites is a startup that is working to produce a phase change material (PCM) for energy efficient buildings. Competing PCM products are extremely expensive, require substantial modifications to building construction, or both. Our goal is to produce a drop-in additive for building materials based on inorganic PCMs, which are more than 10x cheaper than their existing organic counterparts. This will allow us to offer a 'zero-day' payback period enabled by novel materials synthesis.
CoolComposites is using materials chemistry to make buildings more energy efficient without making them more expensive.
