Greenhouse gases (GHGs), such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4), play a significant role in the greenhouse effect, contributing to global warming and consequential shifts in Earth's climate. The resultant elevation in temperatures leads to various impacts, including altered weather patterns, rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and disturbances to ecosystems. Furthermore, the presence of certain greenhouse gases, combined with other pollutants, can compromise air quality, posing health risks to both human and animal populations.
In the pursuit of environmental sustainability and materials innovation, radiation technology emerges as a potent tool. Leveraging ionising radiation, it becomes possible to instigate chemical reactions that break down greenhouse gases into simpler, less harmful compounds or transform them into benign substances. This radiation-based approach holds promise for the development of materials integral to Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) processes. These materials facilitate the capture and conversion of CO2 emissions from industrial sources, turning them into valuable products or ensuring stable storage.


To develop radiation-based solution to convert GHGs into simpler, less harmful compounds or to develop materials facilitating the capture and conversion of GHGs into valuable products or into forms for ensuring stable storage.
