 Professor Zhang Xuehua Researched and Delivered a Public Talk in Bangalore, India

 Professor Zhang Xuehua at Institute of New Energy and Low Carbon Technology, with private funding, has established a joint research project with Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE) located in Bangalore, India. The project will investigate the policy design and implementation of the new city-wide policy issued by the Bangalore city government in 2012 that mandates waste segregation and treatment at source. The research team will conduct field research, analyze pros and cons of the emerging community-based wet waste composting and draw lessons for solid waste management in China.

  As part of the joint project, Professor Zhang and the Executive Director of the Chengdu Roots and Shoots, an environmental NGO specializing in urban waste management based in Chengdu, had gone to Banglore on May 14-24, 2016 to investigate the condition of the emerging wet waste management practice. The ATREE research team had accompanied them to a number of communities that had installed composting facilities and several sites with biogas digesters for treating wet waste. 

  During the visit, Professor Zhang was invited to give a public talk titled the Public Eco-Art as Sewage Treatment: The Living Water Garden in Chengdu, China on May 20.  Approximately 80 people attended the talk including local NGOs, university staff, local enterprises and relevant city officials. The audience had shown strong interests in this world-class, functioning environmental park that integrates natural purification system of sewage, ecological art design and environmental eduction.
