We’re Syzygy. We exist right at the convergence of the seemingly impossible—where energy and everyday chemicals are made from light instead of heat.  
 
It’s called photocatalysis, and yes, that’s a crazy word, but it’s the crazy truth—we discovered a clean energy solution that can reduce carbon emissions. At scale, it’s easier-to-operate, cleaner—and cheaper than any other technology that makes chemicals better.

Which means more people will adopt it.
 
Changing the world doesn’t work until everyone can see how it works with their everyday reality. We’re pioneers of a practical solution that will save time, money and the earth—right now and in the future. Join a culture that’s rooted in a mission and vision that provides an answer. We strongly support diversity and love people with the ambition to try and make a big change in the world.
