He applied for or authorized more than 60 multinational patents, and won 6 international invention awards and more than 30 awards in various domestic competitions.


The global warming crisis is already looming. Traditional petroleum-based plastics cause harm to human health and the environment, because they are not easy to be recycled and treated. They are stacked in landfills and incinerated. Therefore, Biomass and biodegradable materials have attracted more and more attention. Biodegradable plastics and Biomass materials are proposed as alternatives to commercial plastics.

Biodegradable polymer, and biomass resources (agricultural waste, and biological waste recycling) are the good methods to solve the pollution problem of petroleum-based materials, agricultural wastes biowastes, and domestic garbage in the world. Biomass is also a potential renewable feedstock for applied materials. New materials can be produced or reused through synthesis, extraction, processing, blending or treatment. There are quite a lot of relevant research in recent years, but very few can really be transformed into products. This Research Topic aims to explore more feasible biomass materials, biodegradable materials as the target of potential market applications. It is expected to make some contributions to global carbon neutralization and carbon peaking.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

(a) Biodegradable materials

(b) Biomass composite  


Biomass; Biodegradable polymers; Renewable resource; Natural product; environmentally-friendly.
