CarboNet was founded with the goal of creating a new class of chemistry that will accelerate the world’s transition to recycled water.

At the time, water treatment chemicals had seen little innovation in over 50 years. The dispersants used to remediate the likes of oil slicks typically caused more harm to ecosystems and the environment than good. Therein lay both a problem and an opportunity too big to ignore.

Enter our founder Mike Carlson who embraced unconventional thinking to create chemicals that are a quantum leap in both efficacy and safety over their industry-standard counterparts. The resulting innovation, the NanoNet™ platform, became the technical backbone of CarboNet and gave birth to a global business centered around water treatment and remediation. CarboNet chemicals use nano technology to develop formulas that are able to remove contaminants from water like never before.


Today, CarboNet collaborates with companies across industries – from oil & gas, to mining and agriculture – to more effectively clean and treat their water and solve their industry-specific problems. Unlike conventional treatment methods, our customers can recycle more, dispose less, and minimize hazardous chemicals. The quantifiable and visual effect of our technology on our clients and the environment is fundamentally what inspires us everyday.


Looking ahead, we believe more than ever in CarboNet’s potential to change the world as we continue to radically transform how chemicals are developed, used, and impact our planet.
