Thank you to the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research for funding the ECOPLATE project.
The ECOPLATE project seeks to improve the energy efficiency of electroplating plants and processes. Funding has been obtained via the umbrella “BMBF Funding Program to establish joint research centers with partners in the Asia-Pacific Research Area (APRA)”. The Funding Agency is the German Aerospace Center (DLR). The ECOPLATE project provides us with the opportunity to foster a close partnership in electroplating with the Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok within the specific scope of energy efficiency in industrial electroplating and to open a research station at Chulalongkorn University.
