His specialties include skills in green energy and fuel, such as Hydrogen energy (Hydrogen production, separation and purification) , Bioenergy (torrefaction, combustion, gasification, pyrolysis, liquefaction, ligocellulosic bioethanol) , Clean Energy (clean coal technology, pulverized coal injection, CO2 capture, thermoelectric system, ironmaking, wind power). His distinguished skill on Biomass Torrefaction even occupies a leading position in the world. He has an outstanding achievement in academic research, for example, he was on the Highly Cited Researchers™ list of Clarivate every year since 2016, making him the first scholar who was continually being selected for six years in Taiwan.
