Haoyun (Frank) Jiang is a PhD researcher in i-DAT on the CODEX International Postgraduate Research Network. His research focuses on improving the skills of Marine Carbon Neutrality by using Product Design methods.
The ocean is an important carbon pool for absorbing atmospheric carbon dioxide. Over the past 50 years, the oceans have absorbed about 24% of total carbon dioxide emissions. The research explores methods and mechanisms to improve the capacity of ocean carbon absorption and how to achieve long-term and stable conversion of Carbon is very necessary. Previous studies mainly focus on technical perspectives and do not effectively form an interconnected system. This research explores a new concept of using Design methods to link those technologies to form a product or a system. Marine Sustainable Product Design for Carbon Neutrality could truly realise the aim of improving the capacity of ocean carbon Neutrality, whilst minimising damage to the ocean.
