    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about careers related to sustainability in the UK or Australia? I'd really like to move towards a career in this field but am not sure how realistic this is/what options there are.

    I am able to consider the possibility of returning to university. Unfortunately, maths doesn't come easily to me, so I'm not sure about a science degree.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    There is a company that may have a good future in this field. If so, in the near future, I'll bet they would be hiring like crazy.

    Joule Limited

    A recent press release:

    Joule Awarded Patent on Renewable Diesel Production from Sunlight and CO2

    First paragraph:
    Cambridge, Mass. – September 14, 2010 – Joule Unlimited, Inc., pioneer of Liquid Fuel from the Sun™, today announced the issuance of a U.S. patent covering its breakthrough conversion of sunlight and waste carbon dioxide (CO2) directly into liquid hydrocarbons that are fungible with conventional diesel fuel. Unlike biofuel processes that require costly intermediates such as sugar, algal or agricultural biomass, Joule is the first to achieve and patent a direct, single-step, continuous process for the production of hydrocarbon fuels requiring no raw material feedstocks – setting the stage for fossil fuel replacement at unprecedented efficiencies and costs as low as $30 per barrel equivalent.
