Carbon Capture & Utilisation using Algae

The South Wales Materials Association (SWMA) is pleased to announce the second of their April meetings which will be delivered by Professor Darren Oatley-Radcliffe on the topic of 'Carbon Capture and utilisation via algae to create a sustainable circular economy.'

Most people are familiar with the race to net zero that involves CO2 capture and storage activities to prevent global warming beyond the 1.5°C pre-industrial levels. However, human activity also produces nitrogen and phosphorus waste as well. Algae are natures natural pollution control agents and are capable of recycling C, N, and P to form nutritional and healthcare products, thus forming a sustainable circular economy. This talk will outline the current state-of-the-art in algal production, including abatement of CO2 from the Vale Europe Ltd nickel refinery in Clydach.

This session will be an hour long with refreshments provided from 1815. The lecture will take place in room B004, Engineering Central, Swansea University Bay Campus, but those that are unable to make it in person can watch via Zoom.
