PROFILE

https://www.cmtevents.com/EVENTDATAS/WEB210758/speakers/DanielStewart.jpgDr Daniel Stewart is the co-founder and CEO of ViridiCO2, and an EPSRC IAA Research fellow within the School of Chemistry at the University of Southampton.

 

Daniel graduated with a Masters in Chemistry with first class honours from the University of Southampton in 2015. After a short break, he joined the research group of Professor Robert Raja in 2016 to undertake a PhD exploring the design, synthesis and characterisation of novel heterogeneous catalysts for the direct utilisation of carbon dioxide.

 

Through this research, Daniel has brought together multi-disciplinary techniques from UK and European-based collaborators to rationalise holistic design strategies of catalytic materials at the nanoscale. Completing his PhD in 2020, Daniel’s work culminated in the award of an EPSRC Impact Acceleration Award (IAA), through which Daniel continues to explore his CO2 utilisation research upon which ViridiCO2 technology is founded.

 

This work has been widely recognised for its potential to transform the Carbon Capture Storage and Utilisation (CCSU) landscape through being named winner of the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Emerging Technology Competition, and successfully completing Innovate UK’s entrepreneurial ICURe (Innovation to commercialisation of university research) programme.
