What will I learn?

This field of study will enrich students’ research skills through the application of scientific knowledge and engineering technology related to the efficient management of agricultural waste. Research will focus on the aspect of engineering knowledge to minimise the adverse impact of agricultural wastes on the environment, groundwater and public health, and to make use of the agricultural waste as by-products, as raw materials for new products, or as bio-sources of energy production. The main aim is to achieve integrated local recycling and reuse of agricultural waste, i.e. for environmental protection, energy development, fertiliser production, and water saving. It is hoped that the outcome of this research will bring about economic and social benefits as well as environmentally friendly technology and systems. This area of research also covers waste water treatment and disposal, water pollution control, water recycling technology, water quality, air quality control, and solid waste management.
