The Meeting was chaired by Prof Dato' Ir Dr A. Bakar Jaafar FASc, Chair of ASM TF on Haze, and attended by leading researchers and distinguished participants from UKM, UM, UNITEN, UPM, USM, UTM, & Energy Maritime Oil & Gas (EMOG), Energy ThinkTank.
The focus of the meeting was as much to review the progress on the subjects as to identify those areas of research that reach the required "Technology Readiness Level" for commercialisation & to identify other areas for further research. The next meeting will be convened by UTP under the leadership of Prof Dr Suzana Yusup.
