Staff from the ESRI at Swansea University are presenting an interactive stand to demonstrate carbon capture and conversion using "Bunchems" as a method of molecular modelling. The idea is that the participants break apart a "molecular model" of carbon dioxide then reform it to generate a combustible fuel, methane. The carbon capture is demonstrated as a "lucky dip" where participants dip into a box for carbon dioxide molecules. This mini-workshop will be an interactive and interesting way of thinking about a cyclic carbon economy.
