High-value chemicals to be made from agricultural waste thanks to RAEng Fellowship

Dr Alexander Darlington from the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick has received one of sixteen fellowships in the 20th cohort of Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowships. His research focusses on engineering and biotechnology and addresses key challenges to the industrialisation of engineered microbes.

The research he will embark upon includes designing new genetic control systems which dynamically balance growth with engineered function to maintain good performance over real-world timescales. Working with industrial partners he is applying these methods to the biomanufacture of high value chemicals, allowing everyday chemicals to be produced from agricultural waste products instead of petrochemical feedstocks.

Communicating the climate change impacts of food: IFSTAL Public Lecture. 12th May, 5.15-6.30pm

The food we eat is responsible for one quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions produced by humans. Food system activities, including growing, transporting, packaging and disposal, have significant climate impacts. How should we connect and communicate food and climate change in order to influence producers and policymakers? Whose role is it to empower consumers to make measured decisions?

Join two leading food system experts – Professor Sarah Bridle of the University of Manchester, and Dan Crossley of the Food Ethics Council – as they delve into the thorny issues around engaging people on the climate change impacts of food.
