    Dunton Technical Centre - Essex
    Jamie Turner is Professor of Engines and Energy Systems and is a member of the Powertrain and Vehicle Research Centre. He believes that there is considerable further potential in downsizing as a cost-effective CO2-reduction technology, particularly when combined with increasing alcohol content in fuels. In this context, the production of ethanol and methanol via CO2-reduction pathways is one of his chief interests.
