Researchers convert atmospheric CO2 to carbon nanofibers and nanotubes for use as anodes in Li-ion and Na-ion batteries

Green Car Congress

Researchers from George Washington University and Vanderbilt University have demonstrated the conversion of atmospheric CO 2 into carbon nanofibers (CNFs) and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) for use as high-performance anodes in both lithium-ion and sodium-ion batteries. Here we show that this process can be used as a sustainable synthetic pathway for defect-controlled CNT and CNF materials, which exhibit excellent performance in the context of lithium-ion and sodium-ion battery anode materials.

How clean is EV battery manufacturing?

Electric Auto Association

Further, according to a report from the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), gasoline and diesel ICE vehicle technologies fueled on a fossil/biofuel mix emit approximately 245–253 g CO2 eq./km Whereas, battery EVs fueled on average grid electricity emit 105–124 g CO2 eq./km,

Electric Car Manufacturers Inspire New Paradigms -- Seeking Alpha

Tony Karrer Delicious EVdriven

The electric car features three different battery options, two different Lithium-based (LI) systems – A123Systems and Enerdel as well as a Sodium-Nickel battery Zebra (Mes-Dea). The true impact of electric vehicles should consider the make-up of the power grids where these cars will be used. There is significant cause vs. effect debate on CO2.
