This poster is provided by STEMNET and introduces Kola Liadu Mudashiru who is a research associate in the clean use of fossil fuels at Newcastle University. He is working on the development of revolutionary techniques to produce energy from coal in a ‘carbon neutral’ ways.
This includes developing innovative ways to store waste carbon dioxide produced in underground cavities.
There is global interest in his work, and Kola predicts that these new techniques have the potential to create around 5,000 new jobs in the UK alone. Kola is passionate about communicating science to young people, “I want to help raise the ambitions, hopes and aspirations of the next generation of scientists.”
Kola is pictured at a landfill drilling site of Coal Bed Methane at Rochdale near Manchester – this state-of-the-art equipment can drill to a depth of 500 metres.
