During 8-10 August 2017, Dr. Xiao and Yongshuang Long attended the 10th International Conference on Road and Airfield Pavement Technology (10th ICPT 2017) in The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. This conference is a longstanding event that brings together road and airport pavement researchers, engineers, and governmental officials to promote pavement technological advancement worldwide. The objectives of ICPT is to promote pavement technological advancement worldwide, with special emphasis in pavement technological development in developing countries, by encouraging exchange and transfer of pavement technology among professionals and researchers of different countries and regions, through organizing technology transfer activities such as international conferences.
In 2011, Dr. Xiao had joined the 7th ICPT conference when he was a PhD candidate in Delft University of Technology.
It was very proud for Dr. Xiao to get an opportunity to give an oral presentation in ICPT 2017 conference. His presentation title was Design Synthetic Ca(OH)2-incorporated Zeolite as Effective VOCs Inhibitor for Bitumen Materials. This presentation focus on presenting the research results by using self synthesized Ca(OH)2-incorporated Zeolite to reduce the VOC emissions from bituminous materials. After Dr. Xiao’s presentation, Jiří Jaromír Klemeš, one of the Co-Editors-in-Chief for Journal of Cleaner Production, expressed great interest on our research and had then gave some valuable comments. Related work will be published soon.
