Our research work focus on the novel catalysts materials and process for clean process and circular economy, For example we developed catalyst for waste plastics or tyres to clean fuels, or convert waste polymers into monomers, such as waste polystyrene into styrene. In our group, we  have novel process and catalysts for CO2 capture and utilization in one-step, which can be used for energy storage and also power for fuel cell. We also develop novel ways for hydrogen generation for hydrogen therapy or fuel cell applications.
