Carbon, Clean Energy, Climate and How Chemistry is the Solution

14 August 2018 @ 5:30 pm7:00 pm

Free

Join us and discover what a ‘carbon neutral’ world would be like and how are we going to achieve this.

The link and solution between carbon emissions, climate change and a future of clean energy is through chemistry; from removing our dependence on fossil fuels that powers our modern society, the physical chemistry behind carbon dioxide that is causing climate change, to the ability to develop cheap clean alternative energy sources.

This conversation will focus on how we produce and use energy, altering how the large industries that drive our economy operate, to the manufacture of common products that we take for granted in everyday lives. Dr Colin Scholes from The University of Melbourne; will explore how our energy sector, mineral and chemical processing industries, transportation and even how we grow food will be transformed as we adapt to clean energy, future fuels and ‘zero-footprint’ products as we use chemistry to remove carbon from the equation.

This event is supported by The Royal Society of Victoria and The University of Melbourne Therapeutic Technologies Hallmark.
