Fujitsu's ICT Helps to Solve Environmental Issues in Thailand
Fujitsu Ltd., an information and communications technology giant, announced on February 7, 2012, that it will use Information-Communication Technology (ICT) to find solutions to environmental issues in the Map Ta Phut industrial zone in the eastern part of Thailand.
In the project, Fujitsu will construct an environmental monitoring system that will gather, monitor, and analyze data on environmental pollutants, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), noxious odors and ozone gases, in the industrial zone, which has a petrochemical, steel and refinery complex. By using various measurement data collected by the system, Fujitsu will support Chulalongkorn University to advance research on its VOC diffusion prediction model.
Making use of its experience in Japan with environmental solutions, Fujitsu will also support the transfer of environmental technology to Thailand and to help raise the skill level of Thailand's environmental engineers through operational training programs and by formulating standardized procedures for the measurement work.
Adopted in December 2011 as a government-subsidized collaborative research effort in environmental technologies of NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization), the project will be conducted with the support of NEDO based on a request from the government of Thailand.
