Huntsman Knows Carbon Nanotube Technologies

In this episode, guests John Fraser and Zach Lyles discuss what makes MIRALON® carbon structural materials so versatile. Thinner than a human hair and 25 times the specific strength of steel, learn how MIRALON® structural carbon products are not only expanding the boundaries of what's possible in the advanced materials space, but—through the manufacturing process itself—how it delivers a creative carbon capture strategy that simultaneously supports the production of clean, localized hydrogen.

Listen to this bonus track and learn how the MIRALON® manufacturing process differs from traditional hydrogen production via Steam Methane Reforming (SMR) and actually prevents carbon dioxide emissions, while creating a highly useful carbon product that is strong, lightweight, and electrically and thermally conductive. In addition, the MIRALON® manufacturing process reduces the CO2 footprint by as much as 90 percent and is highly flexible - with the ability to be co-located near pipelines or other sources of gas without the need for extensive storage facilities.
