From lab to plant

This prestigious grant is a great opportunity to share this fascinating interview with prof. Kuipers on our 2021 Lustrum Event. He spoke about how the process of making hydrogen from methane can be made more sustainable, and how he wants to contribute to greener chemistry in the future altogether.
