Novel bioprocess for recycling textile waste wins Gold Medal in the International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva
Innovative green technology capable of recycling mixed textile waste into value-added products, such as synthetic fibre and bioplastics, is developed by a researcher team from the School of Energy and Environment (SEE) at City University of Hong Kong. The team recently won a Gold Medal at the 46th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva.
The development of a more effective photothermal therapy for treating cancer may now be one step closer.
Energy must balance with environmental protection, reliability and sustainability, and social and economic welfare. That’s the key message in a commentary article penned by Professor Way Kuo, President of City University of Hong Kong, for the 2018 January issue of the journal Joule.
A smart thermostat for central air-conditioning systems that can save more than 10% on power and improve indoor comfort levels has been developed and launched onto the market by a team at City University of Hong Kong (CityU).
A pioneering system for predicting with greater accuracy the landfall of seasonal typhoons to be developed by Professor Johnny Chan Chung-leung, Chair Professor of Atmospheric Science at the School of Energy and Environment, City University of Hong Kong (CityU), has received a grant under the European Commission (EC) and Research Grants Council (RGC) Collaboration Scheme.
The new advanced material is 10 times stronger than conventional crystalline magnesium alloy and has super-deformation capacity two times higher than that of magnesium-based metallic glass. The magnesium-alloy system consists of nanocrystalline cores embeddedin amorphous glassy shells. The strength of the resulting dual-phase material is a near-ideal 3.3 gigapascals (Gpa) – making this the strongest magnesium – alloy thin film yet developed.
