On August 28th, the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering signed an industry-academia collaboration agreement with Skwentex Energy Corp. (Senergy). Senergy generously provided NT$ 1 million in funding for a joint research project titled "Exploring Corporate Responses to the Initiation of Carbon Trading in Taiwan." The signing ceremony was attended by Dr. Cheng-Lan Lin, chair of the department at our university, and Mr. Jeffrey Chung, President of Senergy. Chairman Andy Chen of Senergy also graced the event with his presence. The seminar included participation from Distinguished Professor Chii-Dong Ho, Professor Trong-Ming Don, Professor Chao-Tsai Huang, and Associate Professor Yi-Wun Wang.
In this year-long collaboration project, our university will gather industry information, participate in seminars, engage in training courses, and complete professional certification programs to provide ample information within a specified timeframe. This will assist Senergy in clarifying the core concepts of achieving net-zero carbon emissions and offering practical and feasible method recommendations. These recommendations will serve as references for the company's future development of a net-zero carbon emissions strategy.
