 On the afternoon of November 6, 2018, the Annual Awards Conference on Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation was held at Diaoyutai State Guest House in Beijing. NING Ping, the Professor of School of Environmental Science and Engineering, Kunming University of Science and Technology (KUST), was awarded the Science and Technology Innovation Award. Before this conference, Professor PENG Jinhui, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and former president of KUST, and Professor YANG Bin, vice president of KUST, also been awarded respectively in 2011 and 2017.



Those who presented at the conference included NPC Vice Chairman CAO Jianming, WAN Gang, Associate Director of the CPPCC National Committee and the President of the China Association for Science and Technology, SANG Guowei, Vice Chairman of the 11th NPC, WANG Zhigang, Secretary of CPC Branch and Minister of the Ministry of Science and Technology, and ZHU lilan, Chairman of the Selection Committee on Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation. They presented the scientific and technological prizes. This year's Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation Selection Committee members selected 56 winners from 721 valid nominees. Among them, there was one winner of the " Science and Technology Achievement Award",37 winners of " Science and Technology Progress Award" and 18 winners of the " Science and Technology Innovation Award".



With full support from Hong Kong’s patriotic financiers including HE Shanheng, LIANG Qiuju, HE Tian and LI Guowei who are , Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation was founded in 1994 to reward outstanding Chinese scientific and technological workers, advocate a good social custom of respecting knowledge, talents and science, encourage scientific and technological workers to continuously climb the peak, as well as promoting the progress and innovation of science and technology in our motherland. With the support and guidance of the Central People's Government and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation has always adhered to the principle of " openness, fairness and impartiality" in selecting and rewarding more than 1300 outstanding scientists, engineers and industry leaders for more than 20 years, making positive contributions to promoting China's scientific and technological progress and creating a social atmosphere of respect for knowledge and talents.



Profile of Professor NING Ping:

 Professor Ning Ping has been engaged in the research of industrial air pollution control regionaland resource utilization for 36 years. As the chief scientist of the national key research and development program, he took the lead in putting forward the technical concept of efficient purification and resource utilization of waste gas from submerged arc furnaces, overcoming the technical problem of co-purification and resource utilization of multiple pollutants in strongly reduced waste gas in the process of mineral reduction smelting. The concept of wet smelting waste gas purification coupled with pulp desulfurization and denitration technology was proposed, breaking through the technical bottleneck of recycling of wet smelting flue gas pollutants. He established the theory of emission and diffusion of atmospheric pollutants under complex terrain conditions, built the largest environmental wind tunnel in China, as well as solving the technical problem of accurate prediction of environmental air quality under complex terrain conditions. He also promoted the joint prevention and control of air pollution in the typical metallurgical and chemical industries in western China.
