Daniel C.W. Tsang

Associate Professor, Programme Leader (EOSH)

Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong

Dr. Daniel C.W. Tsang research emphasizes a strong link to real-life environmental challenges in the regional context. To ensure sustainable urban development, we need to enhance our engineering infrastructure and create new ways in which we manage contaminated land, solid waste, and urban water. Our research group aims to develop cost-effective and low-impact solutions that are informed by fundamental science of natural and engineered systems. Specific topics are: Environmental assessment and sustainable remediation of contaminated land; Biomass valorisation of food waste, wood waste, agro-waste, and wastewater sludge; Stormwater harvesting and industrial wastewater treatment for resilient water cycle
