ROOM 1: SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS
How can new advances in engineering and technology be leveraged to ensure a more sustainable future? Stefan Brendelberger’s technology converts concentrated solar energy water and CO2 into renewable kerosene, to replace fossil fuels in the aviation sector. Karen Scrivener works on the scientific fundamentals and practical realities of cement. She has come up with a solution that reduces CO2 emissions in cement production, to ensure that housing and infrastructure are safe and affordable as well as more sustainable.
