InnoEn – Expert Center of Innovative Clean Energy and Environment
Develop innovation on clean energy and environmental
technology to lead country towards sustainability.
1. To conduct research and development on science,
technology and innovation on energy, transforming biomass
into clean fuel using fermentation, biomethanation and
thermo-chemical conversion technologies in order to be a
substitute to fossil fuel in electricity generating or liquid fuel
used in the industrial sector, households and transportation.
2. To conduct research and development on science,
technology and innovation on management of environment
and resource concerning energy, waste management, pollution
treatment technologies; value adding to agricultural and
industrial wastes; cost reduction of climate change protection
and reduction; and the preparation for measures / mechanisms
3. To transfer knowledge, technology and innovation from
research and development for commercial and social benefits
through laboratories, tools / prototype equipment, pilot
plant, and demonstration plant.
4. To provide consultancy services in analyzing and testing,
and training on clean energy, the audit of energy consumption
in the sectors of transportation, agriculture, industry, business
and housing, resource management and the preparation of
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report, and design
and management of waste and pollution treatment
5. To conduct research and create the databases on Biological
Diversity, transfer knowledge, and raise awareness on the
conservation of natural resources and the environment for
in situ sustainable utilization of the Sakaerat UNESCO Biosphere
6.To establish the cluster of open innovation and the
technology translation on clean energy and environmental
management embracing industry, business, educational
institutes, government and academic institutes, nationally
In addition, Sakaerat Environmental Research Station is
one of the departments under the Expert Center of Innovative
Clean Energy and Environment (InnoEn), located at 1 Mu 9,
Udomsap sub-district, Wang Nam Khieo district, Nakhon
Ratchasima province, which has been established to conduct
research on environment and forest ecology in accordance
with the Cabinet Resolution. The Station has permission from
the Royal Forest Department to use the forest area for
academic research but has to maintain the forest in natural
conditions and to conserve natural resources so as to study
the environmental and ecological aspects of tropical
SERS also provides a learning center for natural resources
conservation for school children and studentsthrough science
and environmental camps, knowledge transfer services on
environment, ecology and biodiversity, ecotourism services
for natural resources and ecology learning. It also has facilities
such as meeting hall for training and conferences both
nationally and internationally.
Sakaerat Environmental Research Station is recognized
for conservation and preservation of genetic diversity, species
of living organisms, and conservation of ecology and landscape
as well as the multiculturalism of the area. The Station is an
area to promote economic, social, custom and cultural
sustainable developments, as well as to support the research
and education. This place is equipped with full facilities to
accommodate holdings of demonstration, training and
education on the environment, and the monitoring of the
issues related to conservation and sustainable development
at all levels, both locally, nationally and internationally.
