Can Algae Help Reduce Your Six-Pack’s Carbon Footprint?
Our CO2 emissions have gone through the roof, with bushfires believed to have emitted two thirds of Australia’s annual emissions in the period of just a few months. With experts suggesting it may take more than 100 years for forests to absorb the CO2 released this season. In short, we need all the help we can get. And sometimes it comes in surprising forms – like algae.
The Daily had Professor Peter Ralph, Executive Director of the Climate Change Cluster (C3) at UTS, in the studio to talk about the innovative ways his team are using algae to help combat climate change. Including working with a local brewery to make a more eco-friendly beer.
