● High-quality CNTs are still expensive. Their production accompanies CO2 emission.
● Production of H2 from hydrocarbon accompanies CO2 emission.


● Produce CNTs at high yield from hydrocarbon by original fluidized-bed technology. Convert C and H in CnH2m to CNTs and H2.


● CCS yields blue hydrogen by filling carbon underground.
    High cost for carbon storage and small profit from only H2.
● CCUS yields blue hydrogen with low-price products with extensive energy consumption for CO2 reduction.
● This technology yields high-price CNTs and clean H2.
● Long, thin, and highly-pure CNT, ready for use in LIBs.
