The Centre for Sustainable Futures dell’Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia was founded in collaboration with the Politecnico di Torino as a result of the decisions taken at the COP21, which took place in Paris in December 2015 and to which 195 countries joined. The Centre aims to develop innovative and sustainable technologies in order to prevent global warming.

One of the challenges of this Centre is to capture CO2 and reuse it as a raw material, but also to develop production technologies that are based on renewable sources.

On Thursday, November 10, 2016, in the Great Hall at the Politecnico di Torino, in Corso Duca degli Abruzzi, 24, the Director of the Centre, Guido Saracco, will explain the main targets of the Center to combat global warming: goods and services based on renewable sources, use of carbon dioxide and organic waste as a raw material, development of photo-electrochemical and bio-mimetic systems, storage and reuse of low temperature heat.

There will be also a round table to discuss climate change with professionals in the world of research, industry and economy, to formulate a message that can bring us closer to the solution.
