CleanEquity Monaco 2013: Gasplas to Present in Conjunction with Cambridge Nanosystems

Gasplas AS in conjunction with Cambridge Nanosystems Ltd will present at CleanEquity Monaco 2013 on March 7th & 8th at the Sporting d'Hiver, Monaco.

CleanEquity Monaco is an annual invitation-only event hosted by Innovator Capital, the London based specialist cleantech investment bank.

Other partners and sponsors include Prince Albert II of Monaco's Foundation, Covington & Burling, Qualcomm, MDB Capital, PR Newswire, Kwittken & Company, the Monte-Carlo SBM and Monaco Chamber of Economic Development.

Gasplas AS has been identified by an expert panel as one of the world's most innovative cleantech companies and has been selected to present to senior financial and strategic cleantech investors, policy makers, legislators, end users and media.

Gasplas AS, incorporated in 2008, has a headquarters in Oslo and research facilities in Norwich, UK. Partnerships have been established with University of Cambridge, BayernGas, Statoil and Sintef Materials & Chemistry to develop, patented non-equilibrium microwave plasma reactor technology for the cracking or methane and carbon dioxide into high value carbons and hydrogen. Gasplas AS is working in partnership with Cambridge Nanosystems Ltd, incorporated in 2012 as a spinout company from the University of Cambridge. They aim to replace Copper by Carbon in all electrical applications through the development of a method to produce high-quality Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNTs) from Floating Catalyst Chemical Vapour Deposition (FCCVD). SWCNTs have conductivities and current densities that outperform even the best metals. Additionally, SWCNTs improve thermal stability and strength, resulting in a wire that is superior in all relevant ways to pure copper wires. The combination of Microwave Plasma and Floating Catalyst Chemical Vapour Deposition holds the potential for volume production of SWCNTs and other high value carbon materials from natural gas / CH4 and from CO2 with near-zero emissions. The combined technology will enable a virtuous cycle, valorising CH4 and CO2 into high value outputs transforming volumes of CO2, an unwanted pollutant, into a highly valuable product.
