Prof. Dan Tsang's team has produced application-oriented biochar from yard waste, and they further develop the world's first carbon-neutral biochar partition block with value-added and climate-smart functions based on the revolutionary design mix and customized chemistry. This technology has been commercialised through PolyU academic-led start-up Neutral Crete Limited.
The climate-smart carbon-neutral biochar partition block has a high carbon sequestration capacity and various value-added environmental merits, facilitating the realization of carbon neutrality and a global circular economy.
