Rose Amal - Sustainable Fuels from the Sun

Rose Amal is a Chemical Engineer and a Scientia Professor at the School of Chemical Engineering at UNSW. In this video, she talks about what motivates her to do research and her passion in securing sustainable energy. With a funding of $2.4 million over 5 years, she and her team will transform greenhouse gases (CO2) to produce liquid fuels using catalyst and energy from the sun.
