„We report herein the effects of CO2 on CNF growth using CO2 and hydrocarbon gases on simply Catalytic Chemical Vapor Deposition (CCVD) catalysts, including Fe, Ni, and Co. Four factors were examined: the effectiveness of the catalyst, the reaction temperature, the CO2 concentration, and the specific hydrocarbons supplied in the feed gas. Use of these techniques will enable one to expect 1) future utilization of exhaust gas emitted from thermal power stations and factories as a carbon source, 2) the future possibility of directly converting CO2 to CNF by utilizing the heat given off by emission from factories and other thermal power-generating facilities as a heat source in CNF synthesis, as well as the future possibility of proposing an effective CO2 utilization system that will be revolutionary in its impact.“
