Science on Sundays: Creating Power from Plants - electricity from algae & plants

Professor Chris Howe, Department of Biochemistry
There is a lot of interest in plants and algae as a renewable source of energy. Most work concentrates on using them to produce fuel molecules such as bioethanol or biodiesel. This talk will look at how we can produce electricity directly from algae and plants and as our Titan Arum is due to flower any day now, Chris will also explain how Titan Arums make heat.

Free 30 minute talk starting 11am and repeated at 2pm.

Our seasonal series of Science on Sundays talks run each month between March - August. They bring the latest discoveries in plant science to our visitors in a 30 minute nutshell.

The series is curated by the Garden's Director, Professor Beverley Glover.
