turning CO2 to nanofibers

‘Diamonds from the sky’ approach to turn CO2 into valuable carbon nanofibers

Decreasing CO2 to pre-industrial-revolution levels is the goal

A research team of chemists at George Washington Universityhas 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 the 250th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society… read more
