TitleCityU scientist’s zero-pollution technology for generating renewable energy awarded APEC Science Prize
DescriptionThe award-winning research of Dr Ng Yun-hau, Associate Professor of the School of Energy and Environment at CityU, involves the application of a new zero-pollution technology that can help to resolve the two issues of energy shortage and pollution.

He uses sunlight to split water into clean hydrogen to generate renewable energy and applies photoelectrocatalysis to enhance the conversion efficiency of solar energy. No pollution is caused during the process.

Title城大學者零污染生產再生能源 獲亞太經合組織科研獎
Description全球暖化下,不少科學家致力發展永續能源,而氫燃料是其中之一。城市大學能源及環境學院副教授吳永豪參考植物的光合作用,研發出在光線照射下,便能催化水份子分解成氫和氧的半導體,形成人造光合作用,收集的氫氣能製作能源,而過程中唯一會產生的副產品是水。

該項研究獲今年研資局資助60萬,並榮獲亞太經合組織創新、研究與教育科學獎,是今屆唯一得獎者,吳永豪計畫於3年內成功把技術應用至外置充電器,推出市場。
