From July 3 to July 5, at the invitation of the Environmental Technology Industrialization R&D Center and the Key Laboratory of Urban Pollutant Transformation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Professor David You-Hong/PUI (Pui Youkang) from the University of Minnesota in the United States came to visit. During the period, Professor Pei gave an academic report titled "FiltrationSolutions to Mitigate PM2.5 Pollutants in Urban Air", focusing on his research work in aerosol science and technology in recent years, and presented several large-scale researches developed by him. Filter cleaning systems that can alleviate urban PM2.5 pollution, including gasoline particulate filters (GPF), highway air filtration systems (FACS), and large-scale solar-assisted urban air cleaning systems (SALSCS), etc. Participants at the meeting focused on mitigating urban PM2. 5 Measures and other related issues were discussed in depth.
During the visit, Professor Pei visited the environmental technology industrialization research and development center jointly built by Fujian Best Environmental Protection Investment Co., Ltd. and the Urban Environment Research Institute, and conducted in-depth exchanges and discussions with the centers R&D personnel on related issues.
