So anyway, this will probably be way in the future, but I'm just throwing it out there.

Yours truly,
I doubt the heat of the reaction (unless you're speaking of something like a decomposition, which obviously this isn't, since CO2 is causing a composition reaction) would be enough to keep the fan spinning by shear heat convection. Also, there wouldn't even need to be a fan if the formula could simply react with CO2 to produce the web.
