Congratulations to C-CBC partner organizations Guangzhou Institute of Energy Conversion (GIEC) and UBC for having received funding from Guangdong Province under its Innovation Strategic Program on International Cooperation in Science and Technology. The Principal Investigators are Prof. Xiuli Yin (GIEC), Prof. Anthony Lau, and Prof. Xiaotao Bi. The title of the project is “Research on thermochemical conversion mechanism of solid and liquid wastes from pulp and paper industry". It includes techno-economic analysis on pre-treatment methods of pulp and paper industrial wastes, formation mechanism and controllable transformation of nitrogen oxides precursors from thermochemical conversion process of pulp and paper industrial wastes, pyrolysis and gasification characteristics of pulp and paper industrial wastes and catalytic reforming of tar.
