Join Guy Riefler, OU professor of Civil Engineering, for the first Science Café of the 2019-20 season, “Cleaning up Pollution by Turning It into Paint.” Riefler will lead a discussion about the cause and scope of the problem, demonstrate the magic of the chemistry involved in treating the water, display the amazing art produced from these new pigments, and explain the economics of their proposed treatment system. The Science Café also may be viewed live or after the event here: Free coffee is offered to the first 50 attendees, and participants who ask questions can win a free t-shirt. The series is supported by the Ohio University Research Division and Sigma Xi.
