GEC is collaborating as Community Outreach Champion with a proposal put forward by NUIG experts, Dr Pau Farras and Dr Paolo Dessi. Their proposal, HyBioSol, involves converting CO2 containing effluents to biofuels (i.e., ethanol and/or butanol) and/or chemical commodities (i.e., acetic and butyric acid), or bioplastics.

This is part of the Science Foundation Ireland programme: Zero Emission Challenge.
