Green Reactions Presents: Rubbish Resources!

Friday 19 June 2015, 7.00PM

Sustainable technology has never been more in the public eye and part of our everyday lives. However, members of the general public hardly ever get to talk to scientists working in this field face-to-face and ask them questions about their research. Scientists working in the lab hardly ever get real experience of how their work is perceived by the general public and what concerns a non-specialist might have.

This event, and the others in the Green Reactions series, will give the audience a chance to hear about and discuss the things York researchers are working on and how they might affect the world we live in. In this event, researchers from biology and chemistry discuss their attempts to turn toxic pollutants and agricultural by-products into useful materials including lubricating oils and plastics.

Speakers include Dr Ian Ingram and PhD student Nicky Egan from the University of York's Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence.

This event is part of the 2015 York Festival of Ideas. For more information click here.
