SOLID CARBON PRODUCTS
Solid Carbon Products (SCP) has developed a proprietary method of transforming CO2 emissions into high value products. Using a patented, low-cost catalytic converter, SCP's Noyes Process permanently sequesters CO2 by converting it into solid carbon and pure water. The solid carbon is a valuable industrial material, whether in the form of carbon nanofiber, nanotubes, carbon black or blends of these, and the water can be re-purposed for agricultural or industrial use. SCP has received positive feedback from industry customers and continues to move forward developing strategic relationships and a sales base. The substantially lower cost of the SCP process is set to revolutionize current industry practices and has the potential to dramatically reduce CO2 emissions globally.
