Autofracture Research


Shannon is heading research to build a next generation battery like device for consumer electronics incorporating nano carbon allotropes. She's looking for a co-founder. Into nano carbons, contact resistance, phonons and dynamic systems or nanoelectronics or 2D materials manufacture, email: shannon at autofracture.com If you currently use graphene or are working with Bio-tech, contact Shannon, as she's looking for future customers.

Why is carbon relevant?

Based on our past history, we've emitted 575 gigatonnes by weight of carbon (GtC) from human caused emissions. Shooting to match the future projected atmospheric carbon dioxide levels we need to functionalize about 660Gt carbon into solid form. In short we need to fully remove carbon from the carbon cycle and permanently sequester it. To understand the scale, it would take about 1.5 million of the larger container ships completely filled with containers of atomic carbon to fully contain 575 GtC by weight *. This would be 39.2 times the current world shipping container traffic in 2016.

Autofracture Carbon

From a commercial standpoint, to maximize the possibility of creating leading edge products with high commercial value and utilize as much carbon as possible, we must build products from solid carbon based materials such graphene, carbon nanotubes and fullerenes, and lower the price to manufacture such goods such that there is an economic incentive to create products from these materials.

Once both are done, humans could build products that use enough carbon in solid form to completely offset anthropogenic GHG emissions in combination with using non-carbon based forms of energy: renewables, geothermal, and nuclear.
By utilizing carbon from an atmospheric source we'll be able to further reuse solid carbon keeping it from the carbon cycle and better efficiently supply consumer goods with nearly unlimited, highly recyclable material.

To lower the cost to produce products from nano carbons, the method to manufacture nano carbons should be lowest cost: practically free, in other words open science & sourced. The fastest way to get wide-spread usage is to use an open source license.

Autofracture pledges any manufacturing method producing highly refined carbon particles from atmospheric CO2 produced by Autofracture LLC will be open sourced (CC BY) and apart of ONC. Products built using the synthesized nanocarbon particles will be commercialized.
