In Sweden, researchers at Linköping University are attempting to convert carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, to fuel using energy from sunlight. Recent results have shown that it is possible to use their technique to selectively produce methane, carbon monoxide or formic acid from carbon dioxide and water. The study has been published in ACS Nano. […]

Advances in carbon fiber and graphene tech: The higher purpose in higher value carbon products

Advances in carbon fiber and graphene tech: The higher purpose in higher value carbon products

August 21, 2017 |

Today we’d like to highlight advances in the production and use of higher-value forms of carbon as examples of a society slowly moving away from a hunter-gatherer culture in energy and materials and towards a pastoral and agricultural approach. Specifically we’ll look at clean, cost-efficient approaches of producing carbon fiber from biomass — including applications […]
