Prof Huu Hao Ngo’s research contribution
Professor Huu Hao Ngo, deputy director of CTWW, is a world leader in environmental research. One outstanding example is his patented GemFloc bioflocculant, a green material that can minimise membrane fouling and maximise the performance of membrane bioreactors for water reuse application. Gemfloc has been adapted on large-scale trials in Xi’an in central China. An investment of $60,000 from the university in the project has so far brought a return of $250,000.
