The significant increase in stocks for the week illustrates that weather conditions will need to be substantially colder than normal to trigger a significant draw in stocks.

Critical for commercialization, he also emphasized that oil and gas companies should be able to create the porous carbon in their own laboratories or by those run by their third-party developers. While the foundational research for this project requires a deep knowledge of organic chemistry, Ghosh said the synthetization process is “straightforward” enough for less-specialized technicians to follow.
