The Center for Emerging Contaminants Research, which is headed by Professor How-Ran Chao, is oriented towards different contaminants analysis, chemical analysis and bioassays. Its recent projects include the establishment of various techniques for remediation of soil and ground water using novel green processing technologies. Electrochemical Advanced Oxidation Process (EAOP) is one of such treatments that have both high yield and economic efficiency. Specifically, the Center aims to develop the use of boron-doped diamond electrode (BDDE) and optical fiber photocatalyst (TiO2) advanced oxidation method which will be connected to the Internet of Things (IOT) system for real-time monitoring of groundwater during treatment. With this in mind, the Center plans to invite students from Southeast Asia for study starting from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019 for participation in this project. The program aims to strengthen regional cooperation and academic linkages. They will experience on-site monitoring of soil and groundwater characteristics during EAOP treatment, understand the principle of EAOP utilizing BDDE and TiO2, and lastly, have the potential to improve the remediation ability of the chosen methods. In closing, students who will join the research project have a greater chance to work in various industries in Taiwan as soil and groundwater pollution are both major challenges that the country currently tries to resolve.
