"Re: Energie für morgen"

Lars Angenent, Professor of Environmental Biotechnology at the University of Tübingen and CMFI Principal Investigator, was interviewed for the ARTE broadcast "Re: Energie für morgen".

11.11.2022 In the Media

In the documentary, Lars Angenent gives an insight into his research work in Tübingen and explains how he uses wind power to convert harmful CO2 from the atmosphere into renewable methane gas that can be fed directly into the gas grid.

The greenhouse gas CO2 produced by humans is considered one of the main causes of climate change. Angenent's innovation contributes to solving this problem. CO2 is used as a building block for methane production using bacteria. His vision of sustainable production of biogas such as methane, is particularly relevant now in the wake of the climate crisis and for supply independence from imported gas.

He says, "If we really want it, we can do it. The technology is ready, but we have to be fast."

You can find the complete broadcast in the ARTE media library.

Under the title "Clever in die Zukunft: Alternativen für die Energiewende", it was also on ZDF's plan b broadcast. Go to ZDF media library (only German)
