sure would love that, but all so far is private funded, by my wife and me personal…
Some of the new developments are supported now by one of the owners of this company, with the goal of bringing this knowledge to the people.
“Share your knowledge for the benefit of all” was the mantra of the late King of Thailand.
So, the 3 of us , pledged to do so.
The industrial company where i am now, does not have a retirement policy, everybody can keep working as long they want. Personell comes before profit.
My job here is to teach them how to use the know how.
Non of our work is funded by government or partners seeking profit.
But yes, we will seek benefit from the government in endorsing our work to build a teaching platform for the future.
i could talk endlessly about sustainability and environmental aspects, but at the end it boils down to just doing it…
as the wise King said once : “1 acre is sufficient to be self sustainable”, then now we share whatever our work gives us more to those who not have that 1 acre yet.
So funding for research & development would be welcome to speed up the process of the teaching platform.
Same as for the industrie wanting the new generation of practical engineers.
Imagine that this current facility wants to use gasification for their energy need and therefore is planting now the bamboo… With the help of the farmers, paying them a good price for the materials.
Also planning to enlarge the current facility to double the capacity for production…
I am talking about 60.000 ton of bamboo per year…
So we are searching for soil experts and agricultural engineers to use land as optimal as possible, to build a sustainable system with different crops on site…
And i am developing the technical layout for the power generation and the infrastructure for the fuel preparation.
Overall, it is nice to work together with people sharing the same mindset. If you don’t care about the people, then why bother ?
