EPFL publication attracts media attention

« Turning an abandoned pasture into a palm tree plantation can be carbon neutral ». OPAL PhD student Juan Carlos Que-zada published in Sciences Advances his findings from the study in Colombia. The media coverage was broad and the re-actions (from the public) sometimes quite critical.

Quezada, J.C., Etter, A., Ghazoul, J., Buttler, A., and Guillaume, T. Carbon neutral expansion of oil palm plantations in the Neotropics. Science Advanc-es, Vol. 5, no. 11, https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/5/11/eaaw4418

To answer questions from the public, Science Advances organized a Facebook live in presence of the first and last authors. The recording is available on this link. (November 2019)

Juan’s research was also highlighted in Nature Climate Change.
