Abstract:
Alan Shalleck of NanoClarity continues his monthly column discussion on utilizing carbon nanotubes as a systemic solution to the CO2 emission-from-power-plants.

Carbon Dioxide Emissions to Carbon Nanotubes (Part 2)

Banks, OR | Posted on December 21st, 2006

"Last month I wrote about using in situ the globally warming Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fueled energy plants to make useful, and safely storable, Carbon Nanotubes CNT's) in quantity as a systemic solution to the CO2 emission-from-power-plants problem. This alternative had not been discussed so I was floating a trial balloon. The response to my suggestion has been astounding. Concerned citizens and technologists throughout the world have reacted. Interestingly, all the responses have been positive. Let's explore the idea further from the information gleaned in the past month."

"The first-mail received was, of course, from a well-known Venture Capitalist asking for the name of the company I had talked to, wanting to make money on the idea. I haven't heard again from him so something is probably happening with that company or others with similar capability. Candidly, I'm not sure that any VC money would be well spent on a small equipment supplier feeding the CO2 to CNT opportunity. The number of power plants in the world that are fossil fuel fired limits the conversion equipment market. Most eventual profit will be in the conversion process, not in the equipment installed. Private investors beware."
