Academician Chiu-Chung Young, Ph.D. (Nantou County, Taiwan)

Academician Chiu-Chung Young g holds a Ph.D. in agronomy and soil science from the University of Hawaii, and was elected as an academician of the division of Life Sciences. Dr. Young has been teaching at the Department of Soil and Environmental Sciences of the National Chung Hsing University since 1980, and was once the Vice President. The current research directions include microbial fertilizers, organic waste treatment technology, the relationship between plants and soil fertilizers, and environmental biological remediation technology. Dr. Young present revolutionary environmental protection technology on the treatment of organic wastes. Organic wastes are stabilized and maturized within 3 hours. The traditional organic waste treatment can be converted into non-polluting treatment methods with no odor and pollution problem. This research was published in Nature 2007 Spotlight on Taiwan
