Carbon nanofibers

‘Diamonds from the sky’ approach to turn CO2 into valuable carbon nanofibers
August 19, 2015

Researchers are generating carbon nanofibers (above) from CO2 , removing a greenhouse gas from the air to make products. (credit: Stuart Licht, Ph.D) 
Decreasing CO2 to pre-industrial-revolution levels is the goal
A research team of chemists at George Washington University has developed a technology that can economically convert atmospheric CO2 directly into highly valued carbon nanofibers for industrial and consumer products — converting an anthropogenic greenhouse gas from a climate change problem to a valuable commodity, they say. The team presented their research today (Aug. 19) at … more…
