Event Details

In case you haven’t known, more than 80% of the 8 million tonnes of plastic found in the oceans derived from Asia. Our planet is bearing the consequences of our ways of living, consuming and producing. There is never a better time than now to rethink the impact we have done to this Earth and improve our ways in reducing this percentage.

This talk will feature Arthur Huang as he provides his insights and achievements in finding innovative technical solutions to turn any type of waste into high-performance materials.
Find out what is our actual carbon footprint and how can we reduce our impact on the environment.
