Jason C.H. Shih
Professor Emeritus, North Carolina State University
Title: The Core Technology for the Sustainability of Animal Production, Environment and Green Energy

 

 


Jason C.H. Shih, was born in China in 1939, educated in Taiwan and conferred doctoral degree at Cornell University and then his career developed at NC State University in the U.S. His research interests covered broadly in microbiology, biochemistry, agricultural biotechnology, environment and energy. He pioneered the study of thermophilic anaerobic digestion converting poultry waste into biogas energy, from the laboratory research and to commercial farms. From the farm digester, he discovered a feather-degrading bacterium and its keratinase enzyme, which can improve protein digestibility in feed. In year 2000, he and his son, Dr. Giles Shih, co-founded BioResource International (BRI) to produce the enzyme in industrial scale and to market it worldwide. In 2016, he started another company, Holistic Farming, Inc. (HFI) for the development of his novel Holistic Digester. He has received numerous national and international awards, including 1991 Pew Fellow National Scholarship, 1994-95 USDA International Fellowship, 2008 World Poultry Congress Scholarship with €10,000 cash and 2008 PSA Evonik Degussa Research Award. He is the only scholar who has been honored by those two most prestigious awards in poultry science. His research results have generated a total of thirteen U.S. and international patents.
