The Role of Carbon Capture toward Achieving our Climate Goals
A Public Lecture with Professor Jennifer Wilcox
of Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Massachusetts
15.00 - 16.30 | Room B125
Global warming is reflected in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, but firms in Canada and Switzerland are now removing this commercially and are seeking licencees elsewhere.
Professor Wilcox is the author of the first textbook on carbon capture, and her research focuses on how energy technologies can be used to address the environment. Her work develops both mitigation and adaptation strategies to minimize negative climate impacts associated with fossil fuels. She has served on a number of committees including the US National Academy of Sciences and the American Physical Society to assess carbon capture methods and impacts on climate.
Because of Trinity’s long-term, multi-faculty research into alternative energy, her Lecture is funded by the Marine Institute under the Marine Research Programme with the support of the Irish government.
