We are protecting the health of our environment through research projects and technologies developed by our world-class departments such as Ocean Science, interdisciplinary single issues institutions such as the HKUST Energy Institute.
Department of Ocean Science
We use next-generation marine science and technology to enhance scientific expeditions of the ocean, develop sustainable utilization of resources, prepare for long-term climate change, and address socio-economic and sustainable development on all scales.
We aim to be a global leader in cutting-edge research, development, and education in sustainable energy generation, storage, distribution and utilization through multidisciplinary methodologies, and at the same time look to impact Hong Kong’s energy future.
Personalized Real-Time Air Quality Informatics System for Exposure Hong Kong is an innovative mobile app to help us manage our individual exposure to air pollutants down to the street level.
The SANI Process
A sewage treatment that uses seawater in place of fresh water, leading to the conservation of freshwater resources.
We are leads research project to mitigate the risks and damage of landslides in Hong Kong by analyzing debris flow.
Air Purification Technology
Our researchers have developed an air purification system that removes up to 99.999 percent of airborne bacteria and viruses.
