Cuban chemists look for new technologies that allow efficient use of renewable energy sources, said the president of the Cuban Chemistry Society Doctor Alberto Nunez Sellen during the 27 Latin American Chemistry Congress, underway in Havana.
The challenge facing our professionals is to find ways that make the country increasing independent from oil-based fuels, with the growing use of renewable energy sources and ecologic systems that have a positive impact on the planet's environment, said the expert.
In statements to local ACN News Agency, Doctor Nunez said that chemistry can make its contribution to the development of the Cuban national energy program. He explained that some energy sources that can be exploited in Cuba include sun and wind energy, while the combustion of hydrogen is another challenge ahead.
