Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Viva Cundliffe’s carbon catcher may be the next step in green technology, if she has her way with it. Her catcher uses the carbon released by smokestacks and turns it into a product that can be burned again for energy.

The “carbon catcher” promoted by Viva Cundliffe promises huge savings to companies that emit carbon dioxide by breaking it down to its original components: oxygen and carbon.

That carbon is rendered into “black carbon,” a coal-like material that can be burned again.

Experiments conducted by Cundliffe, an applied technologist, have been financed by a number of government agencies, including Natural Resources Canada, the B.C. government and the Interior Science and Innovation Council.

“We just successfully proved this week a collection of black carbon from carbon dioxide,” Cundliffe said. “It’s been done and it’s a done deal.”

Cundliffe has a testing facility on the city’s east side. She said she’s now seeking money from the province’s Innovative Clean Energy Fund as well as Southern Interior Development Initiative Trust in an effort to move toward commercialization.
