Dr. Conca also concludes that coal resources may be useful not in burning for power generation but for supporting an expanding carbon industry throughout the world as a feedstock to replace products currently made of wood and plastics. Conca agrees with Michael D. Campbell of I2M Associates, LLC in Houston who suggests that using fossilized (and metamorphosed) dead forests and vegetation to prevent the destruction of living forests and the biologic resources they hold, represents the ultimate in recycling and is a novel solution to one of mankinds most serious environmental and industrial issues, one that could kick off a new carbon industry to produce products out of carbon-rich natural resources such as coal and graphite and the graphene they offer for use on Earth and off-world.
