Pioneers for a Cleaner Future
TAKING THE ENERGY INDUSTRY BY STORM
Who We Are
We started Eden with a mission to make scalable, sustainable extraction of Earth’s geothermal heat and natural resources possible.

Founded by geoscientists Paris Smalls and Ammar Alali, Eden is developing a first-of-its-kind Electrical Reservoir Stimulation technology with applications in the geothermal, mining, and petroleum industries. Electrical Reservoir Stimulation is a safer, more effective, and more efficient method of recovering Earth’s natural resources—helping us achieve a carbon-free future.
Our Impact
We are dedicated to fighting climate change and making a difference, especially to underprivileged and marginalized communities affected by it most.

Thus, we believe the people in our company should reflect the global communities we are serving. Eden promises to be a technology company that creates a home for talented engineers, scientists, and business staff from all unique perspectives and cultural backgrounds.

DETERMINED FROM THE VERY BEGINNING
How We Started
Paris Smalls and Ammar Alali met at MIT as second-year Ph.D. students.

As they learned about environmental issues associated with hydraulic fracturing operations in the geothermal industry, they were inspired to develop reservoir stimulation technology that was more effective and environmentally friendly. They started Eden in the spring of 2017 to develop commercial solutions for sustainable reservoir stimulation.

Eden is currently headquartered at GreenTownLabs in Somerville, Massachusetts, the largest clean technology incubator in the United States, and plans to expand to Saudi Arabia in the near future.
