Professor Pat HarveyProfessor Pat Harvey, Head of Bioenergy Research at the University of Greenwich, will be discussing Biofuels: where do we go from here? at the Medway Campus on Wednesday 23 January.

Her lecture will look at fuels of the future, asking whether biofuels such as glycerol made from algae have a role to play in a more sustainable future using biofuels such as algal glycerol. She will also be advising how we can follow the European Commission’s shift to create “a low-carbon economy, increase the use of renewable energy sources, modernise our transport sector and promote energy efficiency”.

Professor Harvey spent two years working in biochemical business development before becoming a researcher at Imperial College London, and then at the University of Greenwich. She lectures internationally on biofuels, and has given talks in South Africa, France and Germany.

The lecture takes place in the Pembroke building at 6.30pm. To attend, please email science-public-lectures@gre.ac.uk and register your name.
