China’s first low-carbon college, in partnership with Edinburgh, has launched in Shanghai.
The centre will encourage innovations for use both in China and around the world and draws on the research expertise and innovation of Edinburgh’s School of Geosciences and the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation (ECCI).
Edinburgh staff, working with colleagues from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, will help deliver teaching on carbon finance and management, carbon capture and storage, and environmental sustainability, while innovative research projects will tackle poor air quality, improve energy efficiency, and enhance sustainable construction.
China, which is the World’s biggest generator of CO2, is investing heavily in new methods of tackling pollution.
