The Carbon Trifecta is a comprehensive solution for global warming that also addresses related challenges such as the need for economic growth, negative consequences of globalization, a tired and wasteful manufacturing paradigm, political gridlock, a shortage of clean water, and more.


Reduce atmospheric CO2

Our initiative would capture gigatons of CO2, converting it to graphene and other carbon-based materials, and then partner with businesses to dramatically improve products, especially by using graphene, enabling super-charged growth of additive manufacturing/3D printing, with large amounts of inexpensive carbon.



Graphene has exceptional properties including strength, durability, flexibility, conductivity of heat and electricity, transparency, and more. The graphene revolution is unlocking new products and manufacturing methods. With our new methods, graphene can be produced inexpensively from captured CO2.


The global economy needs a business-driven solution to global warming that is profitable and scales up faster than the 20-30 years estimated for clean energy-based solutions. This is it.

The current level of CO2 in Earth's atmosphere is for the first time over 400 parts per million. CO2 is vital to life on earth. A miniscule proportion of CO2 in our atmosphere (only about 275 ppm since the beginning of human civilization) is enough to maintain the conditions for life. However, carbon-fueled energy production, manufacturing, and transportation are now pushing CO2 levels far past the point of danger.

If humanity wishes to preserve a planet similar to that on which civilization developed and to which life on Earth is adapted, paleo-climate evidence and ongoing climate change suggest that CO2 will need to be reduced from [current levels] to at most 350 ppm.”

— Dr. James Hansen, former head of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, and one of the most respected climatologists in the world

The aim of the Carbon Trifecta is to convert the overabundance of CO2 from an existential threat to a business opportunity that can lead to a sustainable global economy. Implementing the Carbon Trifecta will require a focused collaboration among scientists, technologists, business leaders, policy-makers, and ordinary citizens around the world.

  1. Convert carbon dioxide to a suite of highly functional nano-carbon (aka graphene) products at large scale and at a cost in the lower end of the price range of industrial carbons.
  2. Work with industry to create commercial products based on this abundant new source of highly functional material.
  3. In particular, focus on developing robust 3D printing materials, thus enabling the transition from globally outsourced mass production to locally sourced customized production.
