Special guest Matthew Realff from the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at Georgia Tech joins the show. We chat about wind energy, carpet recycling, coke bottles, sucking carbon dioxide out of the air, and the "chemical engineering-ification" of nanomaterials manufacturing. (Recorded on June 24, 2016)
