The Consortium of Chemical Products and Processes (CCPP) engages in process systems engineering research at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, a modern and well-equipped university in Hong Kong. 

Hong Kong, a Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is a vibrant and international city. It has a strong financial sector with an interest in chemical-related businesses. While the manufacturing sector within the Hong Kong territories is comparatively small, extensive manufacturing takes place north of Hong Kong in Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Zhuhai, Huizhou and other municipalities.

Main Objectives

The Consortium aims to facilitate the development of the business and technology of chemical processing in the Asia-Pacific region. The Consortium works closely with industries and institutes of higher education from China, Singapore, other Asian countries, Europe and US on collaborative research.  

The Consortium performs basic research, identify business opportunities, design products and processes, and conduct experimental studies. There are three major focuses. The first is process synthesis and development of high-value-added products, such as pharmaceuticals, bio-actives, natural products, traditional Chinese medicines, personal-care and household products, and nanomaterials. The second focus is high-volume chemicals. These include refinery products, polymers, organic intermediates, and inorganics. The third focus is environmental technologies, particularly on the development of industrial wastewater treatment and re-use systems, creating a sustainable environment.
