With the support of the Department of Industrial Technology (DoIT), Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), MIRDC's Renewable Polymorphic Transition (Poly-T) Materials has won a Silver award of 2022 Edison Awards.

Mr. Chyou-Huey Chiou, the Director General of Department of Industrial Technology, MOEA, stated that the development of the various regenerative materials which are mixed marble waste and wasted oyster shells, together with a 3D printing process to construct imitation coral, where the impact strength of the bones can increase the growth rate of algae and corals, which can be used as coral breeding bases, landscaping materials, artificial corals and island reefs for restoration. In addition to cooperate with the National Museum of Marine Science & Technology in Taiwan, the regenerative materials successfully attracted marine microorganisms to attach to the artificial coral body and accelerated the attachment of symbiotic algae on the seabed. Because the main components of Poly-T Materials are very similar to coral skeletons, it can successfully replace the current artificial plastic base for restoration. Combined with the characteristics of non-toxic and more resistant to seawater impact.

Mr. Chiu-Feng Lin, the President of MIRDC indicated that every year about one million tons of waste casting sand and stone cutting scraps which most can only hoard and discard them. In the future, the technology of Poly-T Materials should be used more through innovative technology research and development as well as the value-added of waste recycling. Using green materials as a solution, it is expected to solve the annual waste treatment of nearly 6 billion for the industry cost. The ability to increase the added value of resources is the only way to truly achieve comprehensive recycling and zero waste, and then inject green concepts into the world, use technology to love the earth, and create a win-win situation.
