Robert Gordon University - Funding secured for ground-breaking carbon dioxide recycling project

Professor Edward Gobina from Robert Gordon University’s (RGU) School of Engineering has been awarded C$500,000 by the Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation (CCEMC) of Alberta, Canada for a research project which uses technology to convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into useful chemical components.   

RGU was the only UK university to receive funding from the first round of CCEMC’s C$35million Grand Challenge competition, which put out an international call for submissions with a goal to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions by fostering the development of technologies that create new carbon-based, value added products and markets.
