Process to produce Carbon Nano-tubes from Carbon Rich Wastes
This invention relates to process for production of carbon nanotubes using algae as source material. The algae mem brane is converted to carbon black using a pyrolysis process. The carbon black is then mixed With a substance, preferably in liquid form, With knoWn self-ignition conditions. The car bon black is then is placed in a sealed chamber. The chamber is then promoted to the self-ignition condition. Upon the ignition of the substance in the chamber, Without external ?am, the energy released from the ignition produces carbon nanotubes out of the carbon black. The process is repeated to increase the purity of the produced carbon nanotubes.
