FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE WITH BIOTECHNOLOGY

Description


Petrochemicals have greatly improved the standard of living around the world, but their production is contributing to potentially irreversible climate change with devastating consequences. With global populations continuing to increase, one of the major challenges of the century is to slow down global warming without compromising costs and our personal lifestyles.


Advances in the field of biotechnology have now made it possible for us to make petrochemical products from agricultural waste, providing the foundation for a sustainable bio-based economy. Join Dr Nic Lindley as he explains how biotechnology can be used to reduce the environmental footprint during production of highly-processed chemicals, and what this means for the future of manufacturing in Singapore.
