Expertise and resources from collaborative networks and work together to develop research, development, and innovation in upgrading capabilities in construction materials. (Construction Material) that is environmentally friendly There were leaders from both sides joining in signing the memorandum of understanding, led by Professor Dr. Phongrak Sribunditmongkol, President of CMU, along with Mr. Tsuyoshi MARUYA Executive Fellow, Deputy Chief of Taisei Advanced Center of Technology and MR. .NAOHITO OHBA, Managing Director of Thaisei (Thailand) Co., Ltd. and a delegation from Chiang Mai University at NSP Exhibition Hall, Northern Science Park Administration Building. (Chiang Mai Province)

Professor Pongruk Sribanditmongkol, M.D., Ph.D., said that CMU has an important vision: a leading university that is socially responsible for sustainable development through innovation, in line with the Chiang Mai University Educational Development Plan, Phase 1. 13 in the matter of developing mechanisms to promote innovation (Innovation Mechanisms Development) that can drive and encourage universities to create works, technology and innovations in a faster time. Answers the question of Chiang Mai University’s move towards carbon neutrality (Carbon Neutral University) and the creation of an ecosystem that promotes innovation research and development. To drive cooperation and raise the level of research to be in line with the mission, with the CMU Science and Technology Park (STeP) and the Faculty of Science, CMU, being the main mechanism driving the work in developing research. To the university

Along with seeking a network of cooperation in research, development, and innovation, that is, Taisei Corporation, an expert and leader in the production of Carbon Free Concrete, to exchange resources. shared intellectual knowledge and push for the development of innovative technology from each other. It also develops knowledge of advanced technology and creates new value by providing environmentally sustainable solutions and advanced technology. especially in solving urgent social problems related to the environment and energy. “This will move towards the same goal, which is to make this cooperation a global research endeavor focused on tackling global environmental challenges in the pursuit of sustainable development. We are confident that we can achieve our goals and continue to cultivate stronger relationships. Through the integration of knowledge to develop future technology and bring research to concrete commercialization. Including linking research to advance even further,” the CMU president concluded.

Mr.Tsuyoshi MARUYA Executive Fellow Deputy Chief of Taisei Advanced Center  of Technology said that “Taisei Corporation” has a clear approach to promoting a sustainable environment. By joining hands with Chiang Mai University Partners with the same goals Through the exchange of resources and intellectual knowledge to jointly develop innovative technology. and promoting an environmentally friendly construction industry. which our cooperation today It will be born as a successful result of international research from combining the knowledge of both sides to achieve the main goal of tackling global environmental challenges. By developing advanced technology and modern innovative production. Also, creating solutions that are environmentally sustainable. aiming to be involved To reduce pollution and release net zero carbon emissions (Net-Zero Carbon Emission) both in Thailand and other countries. that will be carried out together in the future Ready to develop future technology and push it towards tangible commercial use. To connect research and practical applications smoothly

Mr.Haruka OZAWA secretary of the Embassy of Japan in Thailand He expressed his delight and admiration for his broad vision with a focus on people and sustainability. of both Chiang Mai University and Taisei Corporation from this joint agreement. This will lead to the next level of development of environmentally friendly technology and innovation. To help contribute to society in reducing carbon emissions. And even more than that It is also considered a good opportunity to deepen cooperation between Japan and Thailand. Continue to pass the scope of work on national infrastructure and transportation.

Dr.Pitiwat Wattanachai director of the Science and Technology Park Chiang Mai University (STeP), as the main operating group, reveals operations from cooperation over the past period of continuous research and development of Carbon Free concrete. By using concrete produced from waste materials or industrial by-products in Thailand. This type of concrete is also environmentally friendly as it does not produce carbon dioxide during production thanks to the development of knowledge and research experiences on both sides. And in the past June 2023, the administrators and faculty from CMU. Has attended a study tour to exchange academic knowledge Ready to discuss other future operations guidelines at Taisei Advanced Center of Technology, Taisei Corporation, Yokohama. Japan Therefore, it is a spark of cooperation under the memorandum of understanding. To emphasize continuous joint work throughout the past period and move towards the main goal of seriously driving sustainability, which is to support Carbon Net Zero both in Thailand and internationally. Through advanced research in modern innovative technology and searching for solutions to develop Carbon Free concrete from waste materials from the construction industry.

Which is the result of the resolute intentions of both sides today It will be a bridge connecting the development of future technology that will be able to drive research to be further developed and put to greater practical use and will also be an emphasis on many things. Various agencies or organizations recognize the importance of developing research on innovative, environmentally friendly technology for a sustainable world in the future.”
