Biofuels: fuelling the future, or big fraud?




This talk will explore the viability of biofuels as a sustainable solution to the “energy crisis”. The focus will be on the chemistry behind the fuels as well as the social, political and economic factors influencing policymaking and public behaviour.

Why is this important?

We are constantly bombarded with conflicting messages from governments, energy companies and environmental groups. It is essential that we are all equipped with the knowledge and understanding to look behind the headlines and recognise the role that we can all play in solving the problems that face us and our planet.
