Emory takes green energy chemistry to D.C.

The Council of Scientific Society Presidents (CSSP) has invited Emory inorganic chemist Craig Hill to speak at a May 2 meeting in Washington on his lab’s recent breakthrough in sustainable solar fuel research, and related efforts of the Emory Bio-inspired Renewable Energy Center. In addition to making a presentation, Hill will also be leading a discussion on green energy with the group.

“This will be an opportunity to really give some positive exposure to clean energy research at Emory,” says Hill. Work by his lab on water splitting, a crucial component of converting solar energy to hydrogen fuel, was recently published in Science.

The CSSP includes the presidents of top science societies from chemistry, biology, physics geology and the social sciences, representing 1.5 million scientists. The group strives to develop science leadership and policy.
