The collaborative Research and Development project between HKUST and DSD, SANI, was bestowed earlier an IWA East Asia Regional Project Innovation Award in 2012.
Various informative leaflets highlighting the works of DSD were distributed to the public at the DSD booth. In addition, handing out souvenirs for children helped foster an enjoyable atmosphere for visitors from different age groups.
