Breaking down Complex Waste with Chemistry

21 August 2012

Interview with

Bushra Al-Dhuri, University of Birmingham

Meera -   So, chemical processing enables the team to branch out to a wider range of waste.  Chemical Engineer Bushra Al-Dhuri is exploring these untapped sources of hydrogen.

Bushra -   Wastes come from various sources as we know.  There is the kitchen waste, there is the municipal waste, and with this, we're talking about cardboards, papers, all sorts of things.  Now industrial waste means like paper waste because it is also a cellulosic material and then we have wood, wood chips, wood that is used for old cupboards, all sorts of woods, also going further to forestry.
