Technical seminar on advanced IAQ solution for NO2 removal
(Jointly organised with the EV Division and the AMC)
Date, time & venue
12 October 2015 (Mon); 6:30pm; HKIE
Roadside pollution worsened in Hong Kong and traffic emissions contribute a significant proportion of the NOx emissions which have been exceeding the Air Quality Objectives over the years. In order to solve this problem, technology to purify the air from this kind of pollution needs to be established as soon as possible, along with efforts to reduce traffic and to build structures that limit the accumulation of pollution. Activated carbon fibers (ACF) has been developed and manufactured in commercial scale in Japan for over 30 years. It has excellent performance for the speed of both adsorption and desorption. So far, ACF has been utilised for water purifier and solvent recovery equipment. Recently, a demand on the countermeasure for the air pollution in the urban area has been increased. An advanced type of ACF has been developed for air pollution, especially for the removal of low concentration of NO and NO2 in the atmosphere. In this seminar, the speaker will introduce this latest technology and its application for NO2 removal.
Dr Yoshikawa was graduated from Kyoto University in 1985, finished a master course in Kyoto University and joined Osaka Gas in 1987. His major field of work is in the carbon material science, especially high performance adsorbent such as ACF. He obtained a PhD degree in 2004 from Kyushu University. With the title "A study on de-NOx reactions over activated carbon fibers", he has published and presented over 30 technical papers on these subjects and is the inventor of over 70 Japanese patents. He is a Councillor of Japanese Society of Adsorption and Committee of the international standardisation of ACF.
