Seminar on ‘The potential of algal biofuel production with food waste leachate treatment and microalgal cultivation’

On 18 November 2016, Mr Kam-chau Wu, a doctoral student in the School of Science and Technology, gave a seminar on the potential of using microalgal foodwaste leachate treatment for biodiesel production. In the seminar, Mr Wu introduced a research study which evaluated the performance of phycoremediation — the use of algae to remove pollutants in foodwaste leachate for biomass production. The results showed that phycoremediation is a promising green technology.

Seminar on ‘Innovative algal-based technology for the aquaculture industry’

On 16 December 2016, Dr Yee-keung Wong, Assistant Professor in the School of Science and Technology, and Mr Yiu-hang Ho, Research Assistant in S&T, gave a seminar entitled ‘Innovative algal-based technology for the aquaculture industry’. In the seminar, Dr Wong and Mr Ho introduced a research study on the production of microalgae fish feed for the aquaculture industry. An algal-based fish feed system was built and its performance was evaluated. The results showed that the system is feasible for application in the aquaculture industry.
