We are True 2 Materials

Applying frontier nanoscale know-how and materials to solve commercial and environmental challenges at scale.

"Recover ALL materials from ALL batteries"

Closed loop. Cleaner. Better economics.

True 2 Materials utilizes a proprietary process to fully mine batteries and recover all carbon based materials, lithium, cobalt, manganese, nickel, and other minerals. The quality of materials is equal to those used in the original battery manufacture.

From phones to electric vehicles, Lithium-ion to alkaline, we can safely recover everything and provide a closed loop solution to industry.

Current battery recycling is environmentally destructive and economically wasteful. Why spend more and do greater harm to get less valuable materials, less efficiently?

Commercial Applications

Meeting real challenges? We are too. 

Our nanoscale molecules have produced the world’s first high temperature superconducting nanotubes, the world’s first magnetic graphene in a normal atmosphere and in an “as is” state, and an entirely new way of turning electron energy into light in ceramic powders. We are only getting started.

We are working on solutions in the Energy, Mining, Manufacturing, Pharmaceuticals, Textiles, and Healthcare industries.

We design and manufacture next generation materials to commercial standards, they are not only for the lab, or to produce research papers.

We are interested in partnering to develop solutions that leverage our knowledge and unique materials and processes.

High Temperature Superconductors?

Operating at liquid nitrogen temperatures we have developed a completely new way to make HTSC in a variety of forms. They are not brittle and can be shaped including into traditional coils. We are hard at work creating a standard wire, printable ink and 3D resins. Our secret sauce relies on our molecules, there is nothing like them on the market.

Academic and Research Institutions

There is so much waiting to be discovered.

What are you working on?

How can we contribute?

We are seeking partners to do fundamental use research on our molecules. We are working on frontier applications in high temperature superconductors, next generation real “recycling,” mining, catalysts, crop Science and Pharmaceutical delivery. If you are a leading researcher and utilizing nano scale powders, reach out and consider how the best materials can help you achieve your targets.

A building blocks approach

Why sacrifice performance with Nanomaterials that are less active and too large?

Our powders are simple building blocks. Less is very much more. If you are working with 20-50nm sizes, we suggest seeing what can be done in the 5-20nm range with highly active molecules superior to anything on the market. Need smaller still? It can be done.

Meet the founders

It's about what we can build together.

We are looking to partner with innovative companies working on real solutions and products, knowledgable investors and scientists. We seek talent capable of creating the future right now.

If you are technical and can contribute, reach out and tell us how.

Richard Carlow

We are in the nascent stages of a revolution in new materials that will propel us exponentially forward as a society. We founded True 2 Materials because we saw this frontier as the chance to go beyond "business as usual" by applying leading edge nanoscale materials and know-how to the high environmental and human cost of modern development.

We are not a material supply company. We partner to create economically and environmentally compelling solutions to business problems in our largest fundamental industries. Whether utilizing our 2 Dimensional carbon-based building blocks or our revolutionary molecular powders we are driven to create new standards of excellence and defensible value with our partners.
