The official ARC CBBC podcast series. Join us in our journey towards sustainable and circular chemistry!
Episode 4: a thermometer of light
Morteza’s guest is PhD candidate Daan Groefsema from Utrecht University. They discuss Daan’s project, which focuses on converting methane into the valuable building block ethylene. He explains how he uses a thermometer based on light to analyze this reaction, and how this helps to understand the reaction better.
Episode 3: (not) flaring is caring
Morteza is joined by ARC CBBC PhD candidate Sebastian Haben from Utrecht University. Methane is often found as a side product at oil extraction sites, but is burned without making good use of it. How can we change this, and make sure this methane is not wasted and burned, so it does not contribute to more greenhouse gas emissions? And what makes this so challenging?
Episode 2: the two faces of methane
Morteza's guest is Kay Buist, assistant professor at the department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry at the Technical University of Eindhoven. They talk about the applications of methane, but also about its drawbacks. Do we still need methane in the future, and if so, how can we avoid its drawbacks?
Episode 1: green methane
Morteza hosts Henneke de Vries from Shell. They talk about the origins of methane, sustainable methane production and the future of green methane!
Introduction: Chemistry from the lab to the people
Our host Morteza Hadian, ARC CBBC researcher at the Technical University of Eindhoven, introduces the ARC CBBC, the need for sustainable and circular chemistry and his research, together with his colleague Bas Terlingen.
