Dr. Bor-Yann Chen has expertise in biomass energy and environmental biotechnology. His studies focus on applications in wastewater decolorization, bioremediation engineering, environmental toxicology and biofuel cells. Recently, his findings also deciphered chemical structures of electron shuttles and recalcitrant dyes which are crucial to simultaneous pollutant biodegradation and biomaterial/bioenergy recycling for green sustainability. Considering environmental friendliness, he recently explored natural bioresources (e.g., medicinal herbs and edible flora) for applications in bioenergy generation and high-value production. He provided different alternatives to evaluate indigenous biomaterials with electrochemical potentials for applications to electro-fermentation, bioenergy and biorefinery.
Dr. Bor-Yann Chen research interests are Biomass Energy, Biomaterials, Bioremediation, Environmental Toxicology.
