HKUST has developed a family of effective noise remediation solutions based on the pioneering acoustic metamaterials technology. Soundproofing for noise with wide spectrum can be realized with this breakthrough technology especially in the low frequency range where applications of conventional soundproofing materials are either inadequate or otherwise extremely expensive.
The acoustic metamaterials provide a means to absorb low frequency range noise in a cost effective way. It is compact and light weighted to fit into wide range of application scenario.
