We   are   striving   for   a   cooperation   with   the   University   of   Munich,   which   has   developed   a   process   to   filter   CO 2 from the air by means of certain salt-water algae and to convert the CO 2  into various high-tech materials. Carbon fibres can be produced from the algae CO 2 . A material that is in increasing demand worldwide. We also plan to use it to produce graphene and carbyne. We plan to build large laboratories for the production of high performance materials. Furthermore,   the   industrial   production   of   these   materials   will   be an essential part of our future industrial areas. The   Solar-City   industrial   areas   are   to   be   designated   free   trade zones   in   which,   apart   from   food,   absolute   high-end   products   will be manufactured. The   industrial   zones   of   Solar-City   should   be   a   synonym   for   high- tech and sustainable industry. We   are   particularly   interested   in   high-tech   materials,   as   they   will increase   the   performance   of   our   construction   technology   in   ways that are still unthinkable today. Especially in the area of self-supporting panels we will dramatically improve efficiency. Carbyne - could be the strongest material in the world yet A   material   called   carbyne   could   be   stronger   even than       graphene       or       diamond,       according       to researchers who have calculated its properties. A     team     says     carbyne     could     have     a     range     of remarkable   properties,   if   it   can   ever   be   made   in   bulk -   and   some   experts   have   doubted   whether   this   is possible. They    have    published    their    findings    in    the    journal ACS Nano. Carbyne   is   a   chain   of   carbon   atoms   held   together   by double    or    alternating    single    and    triple    chemical bonds. In   their   paper,   Boris   Yakobson   and   colleagues   from   Rice   University   in   Houston   show   that   carbyne's   tensile strength   -   the   ability   to   withstand   stretching   -   surpasses   that   of   "any   other   known   material"   and   is   double   that of graphene, the flat sheet of carbon atoms that is often held up as a "supermaterial". Scientists   have   already   calculated   that   it   would   take   an   elephant   balancing   on   a   pencil   to   break   through   a   sheet of graphene. They   also   calculated   that   carbyne   has   twice   the   tensile   stiffness   of   graphene   and   carbon   nanotubes   and   nearly three times that of diamond. It   should   display   a   number   of   other   useful   properties   say   the   researchers.   For   example,   it   could   be   turned   into   a magnetic    semiconductor    (these    are    materials    with    electrical    conductivity    between    that    of    a    metal    and    an insulator like glass) and could be used as a sensor to detect twisting. Some   scientists   have   reported   synthesising   small   amounts   of   carbyne   in   the   lab,   but   it   was   thought   to   be extremely   unstable.   And   some   chemists   have   suggested   that   two   strands   coming   into   contact   could   react explosively. "Our   intention   was   to   put   it   all   together,   to   construct   a   complete   mechanical   picture   of   carbyne   as   a   material," said Vasilii Artyukhov, also from Rice University. "The   fact   that   it   has   been   observed   tells   us   it's   stable   under   tension,   at   least,   because   otherwise   it   would   just fall apart."
