Siam University at Bang Kor Bua “Social Living Lab”
In 2020, Siam University started our work in another site as out social living lab. Bang Kor Bua, located in the Kung Bang Krachao green area, next to the Chao Phraya River, has attracted many Thai and foreigners for scenic eco-tourism. Yet, nipa palm leaves have caused water pollution. Our students and faculty member from the Department of Civil Environment and Sustainable Engineering have done a R&D project to create Nipa Palm Concrete Block. The final product is now commercialized. The reduction of nipa palm waste also benefits eco-tourism in the area.
