Cesar Jung-Harada launched The Ocean Imagineer, a large floating oyster hatchery solar hydrogen production plant pilot project launched in North Point.
The Ocean Imagineer is a biodiversity experiment which attempts to address some important questions:
- Biology & Pollution: which species are the best to clean the water of North Point?
- Renewable Energy: How much solar and hydrogen power can we produce offshore in Hong Kong?
- Community: How can such infrastructure benefit the local community most?
- Blockchain: How can we enable the indigenous/local/traditional oyster farmers to create other sources of income (oyster, solar electricity, hydrogen, carbon sequestration).
Watch the video below as Cesar Jung-Harada discusses The Ocean Imagineer with Dr. Merrin Pearse:
