Significant impacts of C2CNT technology on CO2 mitigation detailed in peer reviewed study

Study authored by XPRIZE finalist whose C2CNT technology is currently being tested in Calgary, Alberta

CALGARY, Aug. 29, 2019 /CNW/ – A peer reviewed study released today in Materials Today Sustainability outlines the ground-breaking impacts of C2CNT technology and its advancements in both mitigating and avoiding the release of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2). The study, “Amplified CO2 reduction of greenhouse gas emissions with C2CNT carbon nanotube-composites”, authored by C2CNT founder Dr. Stuart Licht and the C2CNT team, outlines the C2CNT process and its utilization of CO2 to produce carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Carbon nanotubes are a high-value material that, when added to materials such as concrete or steel, forms composites with enhanced structural properties. C2CNT is able to produce carbon nanotubes at a fraction of the cost of current manufacturing processes, resulting in a cost of carbon savings in the materials production and also dramatically below the current cost of carbon mitigation. Furthermore, the removed CO2 is permanently stored, unlike other methods, such as the production of fuels or seltzer water, that re-release CO2 when the product is used. “The purpose of our ‘Diamonds from the Sky’ technology is to transform anthropogenic carbon dioxide into valuable carbon nanomaterials and composites to incentivize reduction of this greenhouse gas and pioneer a nanocarbon economy to save the planet from the impacts of climate change” said Dr. Stuart Licht. C2CNT is currently among five finalists competing in the natural gas track of the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE competition. As part of the XPRIZE competition, C2CNT is testing their technology at demonstration scale at the Alberta Carbon Conversion Technology Centre located in Calgary.
