Trinity Postgraduates Win at the ‘Idea to Product’ Global Competition
Dec 13, 2011
Trinity postgraduate students, Annemarie O’Toole, of the School of Chemistry and Brendan Cannon, of the School of Business, competed against five other teams from Brazil, Italy, USA, Denmark and Sweden to win the second runners-up award in the Idea to Product Global Competition (I2P) which took place recently in Stockholm.
The team presented Annemarie’s project, ‘Carbon Magnet’, which focuses on investigating the development of innovative artificial photochemical technologies, which can economically capture carbon dioxide and transform it into fuels and useful chemicals. If successfully implemented the product could capture carbon dioxide and release it under environmentally favourable conditions, revolutionising the global approach to energy consumption and CO2 sequestering. The research was supervised by lecturer at Trinity’s School of Chemistry Dr Wolfgang Schmitt and is funded by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Science Foundation Ireland.
