Oxford Science Café: Cows, Trash, and Gas!

Invitation: Science is fun at the Oxford Science Café! Join us for an exciting presentation by Dr. Kensha Clark (University of Mississippi).

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM Oct. 17, 2023
Heartbreak Coffee, 265 North Lamar Blvd, Oxford, MS
Open to the public

Dr. Kensha Clark, Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry, will present: "Cows, Trash, and Gas: Saving the world one reaction at a time ."

As society grapples with greenhouse gas emissions and the impact of climate change, approaches to reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions have dominated efforts towards changing our trajectory. Methane (CH4), a more potent greenhouse gas that is generated and released into the atmosphere via numerous waste streams, has received considerably less public attention. The major challenge in capturing this gas is that chemically, it is very difficult to convert CH4 into other, more useful products. In this talk, the origins CH4 and CO2 emissions, their relationship to the atmosphere, as well our efforts to develop sustainable, environmentally benign approaches which convert them into important commodity chemicals will be discussed.

When: Tuesday, October 17, 2023, 6:00pm - 7:00pm.

Where: Heartbreak Coffee, 265 North Lamar Boulevard Suite G, Oxford, Mississippi 38655
