  • Oriel Science Cafe-Carbon Dioxide as a Fuel of the Future

    Wed 30th May, 2018

    Join Dr Jennifer Rudd @ the National Waterfront Museum @ 7:30PM Speaking about rising carbon dioxide emissions and decreasing fossil fuel resources are two of the biggest problems facing our planet today. What if we could fix both problems simultaneously? During this interactive presentation, which invites audience participation, Dr Jennifer Rudd will describe the research she is carrying out turning carbon dioxide into the fuel of our future. Hear practical advice about reducing your carbon footprint, learn about new technologies that suck carbon dioxide out of the air and discover why we think copper might be the solution to our problems.
