Science In Focus - UTS and Young Henrys present: Beer & Algae: Brewing A Greener Future

Thursday 20 August, from 5.30pm. Register online.

Algae & beer. Sounds like a match made in heaven. Independent brewery Young Henrys were on a mission to tackle their carbon emissions, when they came across the Climate Change Cluster (C3) at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). Together they have been on a two year journey to help reduce this impact through a world-first solution using algae as a natural & efficient converter of turning carbon dioxide into oxygen.

This National Science Week join the UTS Deep Green Biotech Hub & Young Henrys for a UTS Science in Focus online event. You will be taken into the heart of the brewery with Oscar McMahon, co-founder & director of Young Henrys & Dr Janice McCaughly, research associate at UTS. You will learn how the fusion of brewing science & climate change innovation led to an Australian-first, & hear how the humble organism – algae – is changing the future of our planet.

The event provides a unique opportunity for audiences to discover & learn about science innovation, sustainability in practice, & to understand how industry & science can work together to research & innovate. Further to the event being a unique insight into these components, it also provides an opportunity for industries to discover the value of these kinds of collaborations.

The virtual tour will be a springboard into a live interactive panel discussion around the broader world of sustainable initiatives for other everyday businesses.

YH & DGBH. Tackling climate change, one brew at a time.
