In this thought-provoking episode, we delve into some fundamental questions about the carbon cycle and its implications for our planet. Join us as we explore the reasons behind the rising CO2 concentration in the atmosphere and examine the factors that contribute to this concerning trend. We also take a closer look at the mechanisms behind CO2 build-up in the atmosphere and consider possible solutions to prevent it. If you're curious about the science behind climate change and eager to learn more about the critical issues facing our planet, this is an episode you won't want to miss!
Information about the speaker
Meet Prof. Mark Saeys who at Ghent University's Laboratory for Chemical Technology is making groundbreaking strides in the field of catalyst development. He's contributed to several major publications, including the Carbon Capture and Storage/Utilization Roadmap for Singapore and "The Chemical Route to a CO2-neutral World," which was published by the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium. By combining modelling and experimental validation, his research is shedding new light on how to create effective catalysts, with the ultimate goal of moving toward a CO2-neutral future.
