Publisher’s Note: SNS members and FiRe participants are aware of the extensive amount of work we have put into, and continue to put into, the SNS Carbon Trifecta (www.carbontrifecta.org). The recent addition of Andrew Himes as director of network orchestration has just intensified our work toward seed funding, additional R&D, and international business cooperation on converting CO2 to graphene and other valuable materials.
With five national laboratories now supporting us in the science behind this initiative, and with new staff members coming on board, we’re starting to see this effort move from ideation to serious planning to reality.
At a time when the Trump administration seems to have literally gone insane on issues involving science, technology, or the environment, I hope that members will find the development of this business-driven solution to global warming to be encouraging, even to the point of joining in. – mra.
