Nanyang Technological University Key Developments

Progen Private Limited Announces Extension of Research Collaboration Agreement with Nanyang Technological University

The board of directors of Progen Holdings Limited refers to the announcement dated 20 November 2012 regarding the signing of a research collaboration agreement through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Progen Private Limited with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) through its School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, whereby the RCA will last from February 18, 2013 till May 17, 2014. Progen and NTU have agreed to extend the term of the RCA by a period of 7 months and have signed an amendment to research collaboration agreement to that effect. The amendment to RCA has also expanded the scope to include heat recovery study and hydraulic turbine cooling tower study, while the contributions by both parties remain the same.

Johnson Matthey Partners with Nanyang Technological University to Undertake Research in New Materials and Renewable-Energy Solutions

Johnson Matthey has teamed up with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) to undertake research in new materials and renewable-energy solutions. In its first research foray into Asia, Johnson Matthey will home in on three key areas - energy storage, air purification and membranes, and energy and catalysis; it will aim for breakthroughs in battery technologies, better air-purification systems and in extracting valuable chemicals from biomass and related fields. All this work will be done at the $5.3 million Johnson Matthey@NTU joint laboratory on NTU's Yunnan campus.

Agilent Technologies Inc. and Nanyang Technological University Collaborate on Wastewater Treatment Research

Agilent Technologies Inc. and Nanyang Technological University announced they are collaborating on the development of new solutions for the biological treatment of wastewater. In this collaboration, the Nanyang Environment and Water Research Institute (NEWRI), which leads NTU's efforts in water research, will use Agilent's bio-analytical instruments to study the impact of microorganisms, or microbes, in wastewater treatment. Under a memorandum of understanding, Agilent and NTU will work on two initial projects. The first is to develop a real-time monitoring system for wastewater treatment that can provide early warning of any failure or breakdown in the treatment process as well as provide accurate data. The second project is to explore a less energy-intensive water treatment method by exploiting microorganisms for wastewater treatment. The goal is to develop a portable, low-cost analytical kit for use in developing countries. Scientists and engineers from NEWRI aim to gain a better understanding of microbes capable of degrading various materials so as to harness them for wastewater and waste treatment. For example, when the behavior of microbes is better understood, a solution can be found to the problem of microbes interacting and competing with one another, which hinders the recovery of energy during wastewater treatment. On the significance of the collaboration, professor Ng Wun Jern, dean of NTU's College of Engineering and executive director of NEWRI, said that new technologies in bio-treatment processes have to be developed continuously to address a growing diversity of anthropogenic contaminants, reduce the carbon footprint of wastewater treatment, and better recover energy and other resources.
