15 June 2021, Bangkok – MQDC represented by Research & Innovation for Sustainability Center (RISC) held an online signing ceremony on Zoom with the University of Phayao for a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for research and development.
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Supakorn Pongbangpho, Chancellor of the University of Phayao, led the ceremony with Assoc. Prof. Dr. Singh Intrachooto, Chief Advisor to RISC.
The MoU aim to build collaboration in installing “Fahsai 2”, the second version of RISC’s hybrid automated city-level air purification tower, in neighborhoods outside Bangkok and to help tackle the northern province’s high dust levels.
Phayao is among the 3 northern provinces worst affected by PM2.5. “Fahsai 2” has been installed at the university to record data and help support clean energy for a sustainable environment.
RISC and University of Phayao researchers will gather data to tackle PM2.5 pollution to help communities and develop knowledge to share with other areas.
