森林環境暨資源學系張豐丞副教授受邀於Tropical Forestry 2021國際研討會專題演講
熱帶林業2021(Tropical Forestry 2021 )是由馬來西亞沙巴大學熱帶林業學院(Faculty of Tropical Forestry, Universiti Malaysia Sabah) 主辦的線上國際會議，日期為2021年12月14-15日。會議彙集國內外林業科學領域，特別是熱帶林業領域的研究人員和學者，分享知識，展示最新的研究成果，提供相關領域研究人員交流討論並建立合作的平台。本院森林環境暨資源學系張豐丞副教授受邀於該研討會進行專題演講，講題為”Development of Bamboo Fiber Reinforced Composite Materials.”，分享張副教授在研發竹纖維複合材料相關主題的最新研究成果。竹材分佈於世界各地，大約有70個屬和1250個品種。全球竹林面積約為2200萬公頃。主要生產地區是濕潤的熱帶地區，約有85%竹林分佈在亞洲。另外在市場價值方面，竹材顯示出巨大的市場潛力，為快速更新的可再生綠色原料，利用竹材開發綠色材料和產品將是未來生物材料領域的重要方向。張副教授的演講也受到與會人士關注，未來將與馬來西亞沙巴大學討論發展相關合作研究。
Associate Professor Feng-Cheng Chang as Keynote Speaker at Tropical Forestry 2021
Tropical Forestry 2021 is a virtual international conference organized by the Faculty of Tropical Forestry, Universiti Malaysia Sabah on December 14-15, 2021. The conference will bring together researchers and scholars in the field of forestry science, especially in the field of tropical forestry, from home and abroad to share knowledge, present the latest research results, and provide a platform for researchers in related fields to exchange, discuss and establish collaboration. Associate Professor Feng-Cheng Chang from the School of Forestry and Resources Conservation was invited to give a presentation entitled "Development of Bamboo Fiber Reinforced Composite Materials" at the conference. Prof. Chang shared the latest research results on the development of bamboo fiber-reinforced composite materials. Bamboo is distributed all over the world, with about 70 genera and 1250 species. The global bamboo forest area is about 22 million hectares. The main production areas are the humid tropical regions, and about 85% of the bamboo forests are in Asia. In addition, in terms of market value, bamboo as a rapidly renewable green material shows great market potential, and the development of green materials and products using bamboo materials will be an important direction in the field of biomaterials in the future. Prof. Chang's speech was also well received by the audience and will be discussed with University of Sabah Malaysia to develop related collaborative research in the future.
