In the area of education, Sinopec will sponsor a plastic-free ocean project to promote Hong Kong primary and secondary schools teachers’ and students’ understanding of the global plastic pollution issue. In the area of research, Sinopec will sponsor a technology development project by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University that turns methyl cellulose biomass generated from urban solid waste into biofuel and chemical products. In the area of action taking, Sinopec will sponsor Yan Oi Tong EcoPark Plastic Resources Recycling Centre to increase waste recovery and processing volume in Hong Kong.
