PlantChBE is excited to be part of the recently launched CU-Boulder Crowdfunding initiative! PhD student Chern-Hooi Lim is leading an effort to raise $20,000 in 45 days to develop a way to inexpensively convert CO2 into fuels using sunlight.

Crowdfunding is the practice of sourcing small contributions from a large number of people to provide funding for a particular project or campaign.

Eight teams of CU-Boulder students, faculty and staff have created crowdfunding campaigns with specific project funding goals, deliverables and timelines. Learn about all 8 projects and see how much money has been raised for each.

Lim is joined in this initiative by project advisor Professor Charles Musgrave and team members Yu-Ching Kuo and Alan Aguirre.
