14.30: Introduction to our Sequestration speaker, by Theme Lead, Dr Juerg Matter

14.35: Professor Rachael James: ‘Sequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide through enhanced weathering of basalt and mine waste materials’

15.05: Q&A

15.15: Introduction to our Utilisation speaker by Theme Lead Dr Pier Sazio  

15.20: Dr Bing Tao: 'Converting CO2 into Gaseous Fuel by Biomethanisation in Anaerobic Digestion' 

15.45: Q&A

16:00: Finish


Professor James's talk will describe research  investigating whether waste mine tailings from metal and diamond extraction can be harnessed to remove greenhouse gases and another project, about enhanced weathering of agro-ecosystems.

Dr Tao's research is focused on in-situ bio-methanisation, a process which maximises the conversion of available carbon in waste biomass, into a fuel product that has a wide range of applications.
