Mr. Chow also co-invented a patented electrochemical metal cleaning process that is used worldwide by multi-national companies. He has a background in business management, international sales, project management and manufacturing.

Mr. Chow has been the winner of several prestigious awards that recognize his skills in engineering and business. In 1996, his patented technology, The DynaPower Metal Cleaning System won the Financial Post Gold Award for being the Top Environmental Technology in Canada, and then in 2004 he was named the winner of the Business in Vancouver Top Forty under 40 award.

Mr. Joey Jung earned his Masters of Applied Science Degree from the University of British Columbia in Chemical Engineering and subsequently became a Registered Professional Engineer (P.
