Japan-U.S. Innovation Awards Symposium [US-Asia Technology Management Center]

Topic: 
Japan-U.S. Innovation Awards Symposium
Abstract / Description: 

For the seventh consecutive year, the US-Asia Technology Management Center is pleased to cooperate with the Japan Society of Northern California in producing the Japan- U.S. Innovation Awards program, a yearlong effort to identify and recognize exceptional performance in innovation by companies in Japan and the U.S. and in collaborations between Japan and Silicon Valley.

The Japan-U.S. Innovation Awards Symposium is the flagship event in the program. At the Symposium, we present the "Emerging Leader" award to one U.S. and one Japanese company that are already beginning to transform a major industry value chain (our first U.S. awardee was Tesla Motors in 2011), and we recognize five Japanese startup companies built around exceptionally exciting innovations that will be of special interest to the Silicon Valley community. This year, for the first time in five years, we will also present a "Special Award for Japan-U.S. Cooperation in Innovation." Top executives of the awardees receive the awards and participate in panel discussions about innovation and the relevance of their efforts to Silicon Valley.

 

Discounted early registration is available through Friday, June 16. We recommend that you go ahead and register to ensure your place with over 300 members of the Silicon Valley business community as we celebrate the interactions between the Japan and the San Francisco/Silicon Valley innovation & entrepreneurship ecosystems. Gain fresh perspectives into ongoing Japan-U.S. innovation and business creation, including case studies for success, not available elsewhere.

EE402A Colloquium: A Startup Company’s Solution for Desulfurization and CCS in China

Topic: 
CEPT: A Startup Company’s Solution for Desulfurization and CCS in China
Abstract / Description: 

Founded in 1994, the Clean Energy Project Tech Inc. (CEPT) was the first enterprise group in China to specialize in fossil energy air pollution control and emission reduction. CEPT's system offers an alternative to more expensive and energy-intensive refining of bunker fuels.

At CEPT, Mr. Peng helped develop a new, proprietary system that uses natural seawater (NSW) scrubbing for flue gas desulfurization (FGD) for coal-fired electric power plants in China. With the CEPT system in place, the Houshi power plant of Zhangzhou (Fujian Province), a 6000 MW complex, was elected the first "National Environmentally Friendly Engineering" project in China in 2006. Similar systems are now in over 40 power plants in China.

In 2009, Mr. Peng created the California company, Marine ProTech, to commercialize the new NSW FGD system for the worldwide shipping industry. Their marine systems have been implemented in successful field trials on cargo ships and are currently undergoing final adjustments for commercial use.

In 2015, Mr. Peng organized the Zero Carbon Energy Innovation Union (ZCEIU) in California, which aims to further promote NSW for carbon reduction, namely Ocean-based Carbon Capture and Storage.

Additional financial support of this series from the The Miner Foundation
