Research Focus: Researching nanotechnology for the sustainable development of renewable energy and water purification

Nanotechnology is one of the 21st century’s scientific frontiers. It involves the manipulation on atomic and molecular matters at a nano-scale dimensional level that can bring enormous benefits to society. In his research, chemical engineer Meng Nan Chong is interfacing nanotechnology with photoreactor engineering in improvising innovative solutions to resolve energy and environmental-related issues. Having already established the research, Meng Nan maintains that this research can also be implemented to purify water sources and, while doing so, produce hydrogen energy. He anticipates that this research will provide the “best sustainable solution to resolve the on-going water-energy nexus”.
