Lecture Preview

This talk will provide an overview on pathways toward a carbon netralization society. It will discuss different greenhouse emissions from daily activities and different industries and introduce technologies that are capable of carbon capture and utilization.

This lecture will provide students with an introduction to carbon-neutral social development. We will discuss different greenhouse gas emissions from ordinary people's daily activities and various industries, and introduce the latest technologies that can capture and use carbon emissions.

1.What is carbon neutralization or net zero

2.Technologies for carbon capture and utilization

3.Carbon footprint
