Carbon nanofibres produced from the air


Dr Katy Armstrong, a chemical engineer at the University of Sheffield, said the process was “promising and very interesting on a lab scale.” However, there are doubts about the possibility to convert it in industrial technology. “As they are capturing CO2 from the air, the process will need to deal with huge volumes of gas to collect the required amount of carbon, which could increase process costs when scaled up,” she told to the media. If a realistic approach to producing the nanofibres will be realized, many advantages will be linked to the applications it will have. Even not precisely determined yet, this could be a way to bring down CO2 levels in the atmosphere too.
