Talk Title: Clean Tech Solution for Waste Management by Mr. Guangyuan Li
Waste treatment and management has been
conventionally regar ded as one of the “dir tiest” jobs. The
operation has to deal with those materials nobody wants
and the material disposal often produces pollutions
damaging environments either shor t-term or long-term.
This talk will offer a brand new perspective about waste
treatment and management. Being driven by the
awareness of energy efficiency, environmental
friendliness and the innovation of cleantech and
greentech, the used-to-be dir ty job can betransformed
into a green operation with net zero energy and zero
emission with additional benefits of material recycling and
A recent successful example of the first commercial
pyrolysis plant at Port of Alexandria, Louisiana will be
presented to demonstrate not only how cleantech
implementation can benefit and improve the quality of our lives but also a win-win business strategy can be achieved by
combining American technology and Chinese manufacturing.
1. Normally, three ways to manage the waste materials:
 Landfill and burying------need to use land resources
 Burning------cause the secondary pollution
 Recycling------best solution
2. Recycling: Mechanic and Pyrolysis
3. CleanTech Solution for waste management:
 Core value of CleanTech Solution for waste management:
WTC------Waste To Cash
PTC------Pollution To Clean
 CTSW’s pyrolysis solution: System Solution a nd Project Solution
4. 3”E” & 6”R”:

Talk Title: The Water-Energy Nexus by Dr. William Kao
Energy and water are among the top ten problems that humanity will face in the 21st century. Without water, people die. Without energy, we cannot grow food, run computers, or power homes, schools or offices. As the world’s population grows in number and affluence, the demands for both resources are increasing faster than ever. There is a dichotomy: Water is needed to generate energy. Energy is needed to deliver water. Both resources are limiting the other. The interconnections between water and energy have been coined the “Water–Energy nexus.” They are symbiotic, interrelated and interdependent, and therefore need and should be addressed together. Water desalination and waste water recycling /reuse are key technologies for assuring water supply. Dr. Kao will be covering current desalination methods such as reverse osmosis, solar thermal desalination, and capacitive deionization. He will also cover waste water processing techniques, and conversion to new tap water in Singapore.
About the Speaker:
Dr. William Kao received his BSEE, MSEE and PhD from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. He has worked in the Semiconductor and Electronic Design Automation industries for 30 years at Texas Instruments, Xerox Corporation, and Cadence Design Systems.
