Spinning Straw Into Gold - Cafe Science Dundee Free Talk - 7pm, 24th February
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our cars and airplanes ran on a fuel that reduced CO2 emissions while promoting food production? Biofuels made from cereal straw could do just that.

SPINNING STRAW INTO GOLD

Monday 24th February -7pm - Avery & Co, 34 South Tay Street, Dundee

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our cars and airplanes ran on a fuel that reduced CO2 emissions while promoting food production? Biofuels made from cereal straw could do just that.

Claire’s team work as part of the BBSRC Sustainable Bioenergy Centre to make the production pipeline for these ‘second-generation’ biofuels more efficient and economically viable. Their particular focus is improving the quality of straw for various valuable applications.

This is a FREE event and EVERYONE IS WELCOME. There is no need to book in advance but arrive early to avoid disappointment.
