Researchers invited to Low Carbon Energy event

The Energy Safety Research Institute at Swansea University is hosting an expert symposium on low carbon energy on Thursday 4 February, bringing together experts in the field from across the UK and overseas.

The event, called “Building New Bridges for Low Carbon Energy”, aims to establish new collaborative links between experts in the field of  CO2 capture and utilisation, and advanced biofuels production: chemists,  biologists,  materials  scientists,  engineers  will be among those due to attend.
 
The subjects to be covered are:
 
•    Materials and processes for CO2 capture
•    Catalytic CO2 utilisation
•    Biomass conversion
 
Plenary speakers at the event are Professor Nora de Leeuw - Cardiff University, and Professor Patricia Thornley - University of Manchester
