Reason for Optimism

Have you ever thought about the difference it would make if the air we breathed was cleaner? Just because you can't see air pollution it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. In fact, we're seeing some of the highest recorded levels in major cities all over the world.

Did you know that 92% of the world’s population lives in a place where air pollution exceeds WHO guideline limits?


Neither did I until recently and it's a horrifying thought. 

But it's not all doom and gloom and that's not the picture I want to paint. I am an optimist and with some of the game-changing technology and world class innovators out there starting to address this issue we have the opportunity to make a real, tangible difference to the quality of the air we breath. 

I've been working with scientists at BASF who are continuing to push the boundaries of innovation in electric car battery materials to double the average driving range of electric vehicles and dramatically reduce charge times to 15 minutes. I believe that advancements like this will continue to drive the innovations we need to encourage more people to make the switch to electric powered vehicles, making a future that looks a little brighter.
