Re ECF Project: ECF 2015-54

Project Title: A new method for simultaneous plastic waste treatment and electricity generation using high performance direct waste solid oxide fuel cells (DW-SOFC)

Applicant: Dr Meng NI, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

Total Approved Grant: $500,000

Duration: 1/6/2016 to 30/11/2017

Project Status/Remarks: On-going

This project aims to develop high performance direct waste solid oxide fuel cells (DW-SOFC) to simultaneously treat plastic waste and generate electricity at potentially higher efficiency than conventional technologies. This technology could potentially offer an alternative and effective way for plastic waste treatment. Successful completion of the project can contribute significantly to waste reduction and energy recovery. The technology could potentially be applicable to treat other types of wastes for a better environment of Hong Kong.

Summary of the Findings/Outcomes:
To be available upon completion of the project
