20230823 Are we ready for a future nuclear crisis? NerOcean has the solution!

20230821 Exploring New Frontiers: NerOcean Visits EPD’s Buoy Maintenance Process! We are excited to share that NerOcean had the incredible opportunity to visit the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) and witness their buoy maintenance process firsthand. As invited guests, we observed the consultants performing major maintenance on the buoy, which involved removing it from the water. The buoy, equipped with various sensors, plays a crucial role in collecting essential environmental data for water and air quality, as well as weather information. This visit allowed us to familiarize ourselves with the intricate structure of the buoy, laying the foundation for future deployments of our DO sensors and Artificial Mussels. By deploying NerOcean sensors, organizations like the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) can overcome the limitations of buoy maintenance costs. Our sensors are designed to be durable, reliable, and require minimal upkeep compared to traditional buoy-based monitoring systems. This reduction in maintenance requirements significantly lowers associated costs, making extended monitoring coverage and increased frequency more feasible. Through the utilization of our sensors, EPD can achieve an expanded monitoring network that covers a wider range of locations and ensures more frequent data collection. This allows for a more comprehensive understanding of water quality and environmental conditions throughout Hong Kong’s aquatic ecosystems. This event exemplifies EPD’s strong commitment to supporting local innovation and technology development. It is evident that they recognize the significance of collaborating with NerOcean. We are honored to have their trust and look forward to working closely with the EPD in the future. Our collaboration with EPD holds immense potential to accelerate the sustainable development of aquaculture and agriculture in Hong Kong. By leveraging our expertise and combining efforts, we can create innovative solutions that benefit both the environment and the local community. We extend our gratitude to the EPD for the valuable opportunity to witness their buoy maintenance process. Together, we are determined to forge a path towards a more sustainable future. Stay tuned for more updates as we embark on this collaborative journey, striving to make a positive impact on aquaculture, agriculture, and environmental conservation in Hong Kong.

20230704 Artificial Mussels for radioactive material monitoring in seawater

Artificial Mussels for radioactive material monitoring We are proud to announce that our research teams, led by Prof. Rudolf WU (EdUHK) and Prof. Vincent KO (CityU) developed a groundbreaking technology for monitoring the levels of radioactive material in seawater. This device, called “Artificial Mussels:, has been published in the international journal, Journal of Ocean Science and Engineering, and we believe it will become a reliable technology for radioactive material monitoring in the ocean. The “Artificial Mussels” technology, developed by Prof. Rudolf Wu 10 years before, shares similarities with natural mussels’ ability to absorb heavy metals. Over 29 countries worldwide have already used this innovative technology to monitor heavy metal ions in seawater. As concerns mount over the risks of marine nuclear pollution, we have discovered that the “Artificial Mussels” have the capacity to absorb radioactive materials to saturation within just 7-8 weeks. This breakthrough makes it possible to detect the levels and continuous changes of multiple metals in the ocean in a single process. Compared to traditional methods, which require the collection of hundreds of liters of seawater and complicated sampling and preliminary work, the “Artificial Mussels” are much more cost-effective, costing only US$ 1 each. This makes it more suitable for long-term and large-scale sewage monitoring. We believe that the “Artificial Mussels” can help governments worldwide regularly inspect water for nuclear pollution at low cost and high efficiency to safeguard the environment and food safety. With NerOcean’s expertise in modification and commercialization, we are confident that the “Artificial Mussels” will be further optimized for efficiency and effectiveness. We look forward to continuing to develop innovative solutions that promote the sustainability of environmental monitoring and management.
