Chun graduated from California State University, Chico, in the USA with a Bachelor's Degree in Biochemistry. He was working in the Microbiology-Related field for more than 6 years. During his occupation in the USA, he has discovered polyculture microbial consortia containing various antimicrobial properties are more effective against pathogens than mono-cultured microbial innoculants. In a consortium, anti-microbial resistance from pathogens was not observed.
Chun has worked with many organic poultry and livestock farms where synthetic drugs were not allowed. Animals in these farms may still face the same diseases in Conventional farms howbeit lesser, so solutions were administered using beneficial microorganisms with antagonistic behaviors against pathogenic strands. Antiviral along with Immuno-modulatory characteristics have also been observed.
His interest in Biofuel Technology started at his last occupation in the USA in 2012. The company was processing more than 200,000 tons of Green Waste and was approached by a group of researchers who were conducting an experiment to convert woody materials into bio-gasoline (bio-petrol).
He later returned to Malaysia and spent two years there (2014-2016) when his father became gravely ill. Early in 2014, he started his biocrude oil project to convert biosolid (poo) into Biocrude Oil. During this early stage, the concept was met with tremendous skepticism. His project was later reported on Sinchew News Paper, the largest Chinese News Paper in Southeast Asia.
Chun later went to China to build his first semi-continuous prototype. Similar projects are easily over US$2millions in the West. But in China, Chun can afford to go without pay while self-funding the project since the cost of living there was lower. The project later received investment from a rich friend in China.
The prototype was a success but the wastewater industry was not ready for it. They seem to like what they were doing currently despite how costly and damaging to the environment.
While in China, our team collaborated with Professor Hankamer from the University of Queensland. His team provided us the Techno-Economic evaluation of the cost for the development of the technology.
The same Technology may be used to solve Plastic Pollution.
