“Mitr Phol Innovation & Research Center Co., Ltd. highly recognizes the importance of environmental policy and Net Zero emission is taken into account as part of the company’s strategy since our products are sold worldwide and carbon emission issue is raised in awareness among our customers. Our environmental policy will therefore affect customers’ consideration and our competitiveness later on. The company conducts research on carbon emission reduction, database of total reduced carbon, and environmental friendliness of our products. We are pretty sure that SLRI will be our active partner in Net Zero policy”, said Dr. Ruethaivanich.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Rujirawat said, “This MOU includes working together on synchrotron-related research, development, technology, equipment, and tools. The MOU signing will lead to collaboration in research analysis, analyzing techniques, and laboratory tools, from laboratory to prototype and industrial scales. Mitr Phol Innovation & Research Center Co., Ltd. and SLRI will also support each other in academics, trainings, human resources development, techniques and engineering.”
