VNF would like to send our warmest congratulations to the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HCMUT), Associate Professor. 👩🏻Le Thi Kim Phung , and The Sustainable Process Engineering Group (SPE) on your successful research of Composite Aerogel materials from agricultural byproducts: pineapple leaf and CHITOSAN 🦐. This material has been successfully tested in dye-contaminated wastewater treatment. The research paper “Composite aerogels of TEMPO-oxidized pineapple leaf pulp and chitosan for dyes removal” was published in the journal Separation and Purification Technology on November 21st 2021.
📅 Since the MOU signing ceremony on 27th December 2018 between VNF and HCMUT, VNF is always proud to cooperate with one of the leading universities in Vietnam. The ‘’Composite Aerogel” project’s positive results mark a significant milestone in the collaboration between VNF and HCMUT.
🎯 CHITOSAN is once again proven as a ‘’green and valuable’’ material. VNF believes that groundbreaking applications will continue to develop by exploring Chitosan’s unique features, such as this composite material Aerogel which will protect the environment and valorize agricultural waste in Vietnam.
