After reading Marshall Frank’s Three Carbon Dioxide Utilization Technologies, we identified another promising CO2 feedstock process that promises to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Solid Carbon Products LLC
Solid Carbon Products of Provo, Utah has developed a catalytic process for using hydrogen, or methane, and CO2, as feedstocks, to form nanotubes and water. The nanotubes can then be used to form many different composites including cement, aluminum, and steel that are reported to be one-third lighter and three times stronger. The bench scale plant is producing good products, and the developer has recently received EPA approval for its process for handling the produced nanotubes. Scaling up to larger plants is now underway. This process offers a significant way to use CO2 to manufacture revolutionary products.
