University of Southern California supports Iceland green project

I welcomed Professor G.K. Surya Prakash and Robert Aniszfeld, Director and Managing Director of USC's Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute. Professor Prakash is one of the world's leading authorities on hydrocarbon chemistry and an inspirational leader of the movement to promote the wider use of methanol as a way to reduce our dependence on oil and gas.

The visitors have been coming to Iceland over the last few years to follow up and support the work of Iceland's Carbon Recycling International - the world's only industrial producer of methanol from carbon emissions. This is another example of cooperation between some of the world's top scientists from U.S. universities and Icelandic organizations.
