Recycled CO2 to liquid fuel pioneer gains $40m financing to continue growth


Joule, the pioneer of liquid fuels from recycled CO2, today announced the closing of $40m in private equity and venture debt financing, supporting the company’s growth towards commercialization.

The round was led by existing investors, including Flagship Ventures, and brings the company’s total to $200m raised to date.
