This company

Air carbon pellets

has successfully converted a useless mass of


greenhouse gases into usable, ecofriendly plastic called
Aircarbon.

Aircarbon is ecofriendly, cheaper to manufacture than oil-based


plastic, and has a potentially limitless supply of base material,
namely CO2.
Aircabon process

Scientific Fundamentals

A catalyst is used to target CO2 in greenhouse gas and turn it from a gas into a
solid.

A catalyst is a chemical that interacts with another chemical or element which


causes an accelerated reaction.

Aircarbon Production

The Future With AirCarbon


The future goals of this company is to:
Eventually replace all oil-based plastic with Aircarbon plastic on a
global scale
Move oil out of the worlds products
Reduce material production costs
Reduce the amount of carbon in the air
