Briefing of Work Experience
Dr. Lo has over 40 years of practical engineering consulting and engineering management experiences. While studying and working in the United States (1964-1984), Dr. Lo directed several large-scale Environmental Protection and Pollution Prevention work for the government and industrial sectors as an engineering consultant. For instance, in as early as 1973, Dr. Lo was in charge of the waste treatment planning and design in Brooklyn, Massachusetts, and had undergone thorough reviews on the subject. This experience later served as an important foundation to effectively implement the waste treatment procedure in Detroit, Florida. In addition, Dr. Lo was also responsible for the construction of wastewater treatment facilities Punta Gorda, as well as the expansion of the Miami International Airport.
In 1985, Dr. Lo returned to Taiwan upon request of the National Science Council to become a professor and head of the department in environmental engineering at the National Chung Hsing University. When the Taipower Company established the Department of Environmental Protection, Dr. Lo was asked to be the director. Over the next 3 years as the first director assigned for the department, Dr. Lo had conducted a 1.5 billion U.S. dollar program on Taipower’s air, water and solid waste pollution control program. The result was very successful which sets a model for the nation’s environmental protection.
In October 1989, Dr. Lo founded Unitech Engineering on the fundamentals of experience gained from national and international industrial, governmental and academic fields, with the purpose to provide the nation with environmental protection services. The company now has over 40 employees, and serves as a professional consulting company.
