  • Putting CO2 to a good use

    European Synchrotron Research Facility , 30th Apr 2018

    One of the biggest culprits of climate change is an overabundance of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. As the world tries to find solutions to reverse the problem, scientists from Swansea University have found a way of using CO2 to create ethylene, a key chemical precursor. They have used ID03 to test their hypotheses.
