At a glance

  • Environment-friendly carbon nanofiber production
  • Removes CO₂ from the atmosphere
  • Excellent conductivity and tensile strength

Carbon nanofiber is an emerging material that is lighter than plastic and stronger than steel, with exceptional thermal and electrical conductivity. The material is in rapidly growing demand for a wide range of industrial and technological applications.

Production of carbon nanofibers, however, is traditionally based on the carbon-containing vapours found in natural gas. This manufacturing process has high energy demands and results in greenhouse gas emissions.

Using CO₂ to produce carbon nanofibers

Rather than using natural gas to produce carbon nanofibers – with resulting CO₂ emissions – Bergen Carbon Solutions uses CO₂ to produce the nanofibers – leaving only O₂ emissions.

The company does this by capturing CO₂ directly from industrial chimneys. The Bergen Carbon system uses less energy than traditional methods, and the only by-product of the process is pure oxygen gas.

Bergen Carbon Solutions’ production process is a CO₂-negative technology, which results in cleaner air and reduced industrial emissions.

Concrete benefits

Due to their unique combination of strength, durability and conductivity, carbon nanofibers have a vast range of applications. They have revolutionised energy storage, protective clothing, flame retardance and oil spill remediation, as well as therapeutic cancer drugs.

Bergen Carbon Solutions’ technology makes the production of carbon nanofibers more cost effective, with a positive environmental impact. Greenhouse gases are removed from the atmosphere rather than added to it.

Market potential

The market for carbon nanofibers is experiencing rapid growth, principally due to emerging applications in the electronics and healthcare industries. The carbon nanofiber market is estimated to grow from USD 420 million in 2018 to USD 1.1 billion by 2023.

Bergen Carbon Solutions was founded in 2016 and its was verified by SINTEF in 2017.
