重點規劃Planning emphasis

一、綠色能源科技

除了開發高能源效率之技術與製程,以減緩能源之消耗外,亦須開發高效率、潔淨與環境相容之潔淨能源及其相關之儲存與轉換技術,以降低對石化燃料之依賴,達到地球永續發展之目標。 

 

二、綠色化學製程與材料研究

化學工程是台灣最重要的製造業基礎,為達永續發展與環境保護之目的,推動綠色化學製程與材料將是無法避免的方向。在全球化之今天,符合全球環保法規之綠色化學製程與材料,將是國內化學材料產業升級與切入市場之契機。 

 

三、生物科技

未來人類健康與生活品質的提昇,將有賴生物科技的發展,化學工程在其中扮演關鍵且不可或缺的角色,除了生化製程之開發,使學理上證明可行的技術,得以符合經濟效益的規模量產外,其它有關生醫材料研發、藥物釋放控制與藥物之研發、醫療與疾病檢測、組織與細胞工程等相關研究,亦是重要之研究方向。

 

四、可循環資源高值化

台灣本身缺乏天然資源,多數金屬元素及燃料能源皆仰賴進口,而這些資源是多數產業發展的關鍵。故規劃專案計畫發展「非糧食生質資源高質化」與「循環材料高值化」,為期化學工程與食品工程能投入研發創技術,提昇國內產業界研發水準。

 


I. Green energy technology

In addition to the development of high efficiency energy resources and processes aimed at slowing down the consumption of energy, there should also be efforts to develop high efficiency, clean and environmentally compatible energy sources and their associated storage and conversion technologies so as to lower the dependence on fossil fuel and to ensure continued development in the Earth environment.

 

II. Green chemical processing and materials research

Chemical engineering is the most important foundation of Taiwan's manufacturing industry. In order to ensure sustainability and to protect the environment, the promotion of green chemical processing and materials research is unavoidable. With today's globalization, green manufacturing and materials that conform to the global environmental protection regulations will be a new opportunity for Taiwan to upgrade its domestic chemical materials industry and enter the international market.

 

III. Biotechnology

Future improvements of human health and quality of life rely on the development of biotechnology. Chemical engineering plays a key role and is indispensable in this area. In addition to the development of biochemical processing, the theoretical proof of feasibility of technologies, and the assurance that mass production is in line with economic benefits, there are other important research directions including biomedical materials development, research in drug release control and pharmaceuticals, detection of diseases, and research in tissues and cells.

 

IV. Value added of resource recycling

Taiwan lacks natural resources of its own and relies on imports for most metallic elements and fuel resources that are crucial to the development of most industries. For this reason, the special planning project calls for "quality improvement of non-crop biomass resources," and "value added recycled materials," with the expectation that the chemical engineering and food industries will devote to technology development and raise the R&D standards of domestic industries.
