For the past two weeks at Tunghai International College, a group of 33 students from Hong Kong Polytechnic have attended a series of lectures about renewable energy. On Saturday, the Director Manufacturing Technology and Engineering of Corning Incorporated Dr. James Ogundele presented to the students about the emergence of sustainable energy in a corporate context. The following Monday, Dr. Ogundele invited the students on a tour of the Taichung Corning factory, which is best known for producing LCD screens. The tour and information session gave insight into how Corning hopes to create a more environmentally friendly manufacturing process by incorporating practices such as using water filtration, banning heavy metals, encouraging material recycling, and deliberately greenscaping. Corning’s tree filled corporate campus showed the Hong Kong Polytechnic students how an international corporation is pushing to be more green, both inside and out.
