Stony Brook researchers are using an artificial intelligence (AI) approach to reduce carbon emissions by converting carbon dioxide into methane, which will be made into a non-fossil fuel energy source.
Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr. joined the launch of a multi-university coalition to fight climate change at the 2018 Higher Education Climate Change Leadership Summit on Tuesday, Feb. 6.
Located between Circle Road and the Simons Center is a field of mud, a collection of strange-looking offices and a building that emits smoke. This area is dedicated to the Office of Sustainability’s Facilities and Services division, tasked with providing Stony Brook University with reliable power, installing sustainable technologies and initiatives and monitoring the campus’s consumption of energy. James O’Connor, the director of Sustainability & Transportation Operations, oversees this effort, making sure different divisions work together in this goal.
