The UK’s ambition to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 will not be possible without new and innovative catalysis. We will be presenting at The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition activities and displays that highlight to the public; (1) How integrated petroleum products are currently to our daily lives, beyond “just fuel”. (2) The fundamental concepts of catalysis and how it will enable us to move beyond oil. (3) The extent of the scientific challenges in enacting this change through catalysis and how it requires a collaborative effort between different scientific, engineering communities, and national facilities. We will show a selection of the displays intended for the exhibition in the summer.
