Blended Research – Going Green: Sustainable Technologies

There seems to be a greater awareness in society of a need to put less of a strain on our planet. Sustainable technologies can help to meet the ever increasing demand for energy while reducing the harmful effects men have placed on the environment. Join us and hear of few examples of how faculty and graduate students at Georgia Tech are developing green technologies including harvesting energy from solar vortices like dust-devils, capturing carbon dioxide to reduce the greenhouse effect and developing effective public policy for energy use.
