"I transform waste into value"
The military government sent me to Sweden in exile. I took this opportunity to get a solid education and to live in a country with the highest quality of goverment.

The chemistry underlining our idea from plastics to food: 1. The plastics gasification process to form syngas 2. The refining of syngas by Fischer-Tropsch to form the chemical intermediates: Methanol, Ethanol, Acetic acids and Aldehydes, MTBE, DME.
