The issue of climate change and the ever increasing energy demand is the driving force for researching new efficient materials for energy storage and development of low-carbon methods for fabricating them. It is widely known that the majority of the CO2emissions originate from the iron and steel industry. The total world steel production is in excess of 10,000 billion tons, and on average, the steel industry produces 1.9 tons of CO2per ton of steel produced. Whilst there are many studies on the storage of CO2, it is more desirable to convert it into something useful with commercial value. [Continues.]
