A research team led by Professor Kenneth Leung Mei-yee, Director of State Key Laboratory of Marine Pollution (SKLMP) at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) and Chair Professor of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry generates promising results for enhancing marine biodiversity on seawalls in the western waters of Hong Kong via eco-engineered tiles. This technology can be applied to all existing seawalls in Hong Kong to improve Hong Kong’s coastal marine ecosystems.
Professor Leung will introduce the findings of the study and demonstrate the eco-engineered tiles at the press conference. A media tour of the SKLMP will be arranged after the press conference for the media representatives who are interested to learn more about the works of SKLMP.
