About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

Lee-Davies talked about his new initiative, Project C: Change. It is about converting biofuel – which is obtained from living matter – to usable fuel. He set out [on a journey] from Singapore to Cambodia [using] a machine which can convert [used] vegetable oil into fuel. He said it’s an idea that could change the entire fuel industry. Agricultural waste in countries such as Cambodia can also be converted into these fuels. The best part is that these fuels can work on a regular car engine, which could provide a quick, effective, long-term solution to our energy crisis.
