Arthur Huang Founder and Managing Director
Recognizing for his innovative spirit in the field of sustainable material development based on today’s ever growing urban trash resources, Arthur was selected by Mayor Bloomberg as New York City’s Venture Fellows 2012, awarded the Finalist of Wall Street Journal’s Asian Innovator Award 2011, recognized as the Winner of Financial Times’ Earth Award 2010 (global product category), reported by Economist’s cover story, April 2012, ‘The Third Industrial Revolution’ as one of the global inventors with “new game-changing ingredients” that has “a concrete advantage.” National Geographic Channel’s ‘Megastructure’ series featured Mr. Huang and his MINWIZ team in an hour long documentary telling the vivid story of their ground breaking trash-to-building R/D process broadcasted across 140 countries in 26 languages since 2011. In 2012, CNN’s ‘EcoSolution’ program featured MINIWIZ and Huang’s quest to develop up-cycling technology to “profit from urban mining” in Taiwan by collecting world’s post consumer trash including, e-waste, consumer packaging/containers, and industrial agriculture by-products.
Graduated from Cornell University’s B-ARCH program, Arthur developed a multi-disciplinary maker-doer ethos at a young age inspired by history, structure engineering and biology. He later completed his graduate study in Harvard’s M-Arch II program with special concentration in green business development, where he investigated the possibility of sustainable economic growth based on renewable resources. With no successful precedents in sight, he decided to start a company pioneering into transforming universally accepted carbon minimizing concepts into physical products/materials. He began his venture by working closely with the manufacturing supply chain in Asia in order to have an intrinsic understanding of the underlying global production ecosystem since 2004. Mr. Huang formally established MINIWIZ in 2005NY/2006 HK and since then the company has grown organically into a profitable international eco-material /building module product company employing over 40 full-time international professional engineers, architects and industrial designers.
