'Carbon to Products Seminar - pathway to a sustainable future' held Wednesday 7 February 2018


Carbon, in the form of brown coal and lignin, has traditionally been used predominately for the production of electricity and, in earlier times for coal briquettes in home heating and for industrial use.  Advances in science has opened up new options for the utilisation of these vast carbon resources. This seminar showcased some of the potential uses and research into these new technologies and the industry applications within the agriculture, manufacturing, transport, new energy and waste sectors.
