HONG Kong’s secretary for the environment has heard from a Capital biofuel expert during an official visit to Scotland.

Edward Yau toured the Biofuel Research Centre at Edinburgh Napier University as part of a European green technology trip encompassing cities in Sweden, Denmark, Scotland and England. As part of the Scottish leg, Mr Yau also met with Minister for Environment and Climate Change, MSP Stewart Stevenson.

Napier has strong links with Hong Kong’s growing renewables sector, working with biofuel sector players including airline Cathay Pacific.

Mr Yau’s visit to the university follows a visit by the current chief executive of Hong Kong, Donald Tsang, in September 2011.

Professor Martin Tangney, director of the Biofuel Research Centre at Napier, said: “It was an honour to welcome Mr Yau and the Hong Kong delegation to the campus, and to be able to share some of the successes we’ve achieved.”
