The project started in 2010 by Kenneth Koo of Tai Chong Cheang Steamship Co. (H.K.) Ltd (TCCHK) who believes collaboration between industry and academia is needed to substantially reduce the greenhouse gas emissions and harmful pollutants emitted by conventional large bore two-stroke single-acting marine diesel engines used by the world’s merchant shipping fleets. See the attached flyer for more info and the agenda and to read more about this project go to http://viterbi.usc.edu/news/news/2010/new-usc-institute.htm. If you are interested in attending this forum you can register directly from the attached flyer.
USC Viterbi Dean Yannis Yortsos and TCCHK Group Chairman and CEO Kenneth Koo sign a memorandum establishing the new USC institute.
Hopefully you will be able to join us.
