Water and life below water
KMITL has implemented projects and guidelines to reduce water consumption within the institute and ensure water efficiency. For example, sanitary sensors were installed in restrooms to reduce excess water waste and a wastewater reuse program to retain treated wastewater for reuse in activities that do not require much water purity, such watering lawns and trees.
KMITL has a water reservoir for use as a reserve water source in agriculture and watering the plants in the green area surrounding the campus.
Water saving equipment
King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang continues changing to uses water-saving equipment.
Water treatment and Recycling
An EM ball project produce EM balls that consist of rice husk, rice polish, rough rice molasses, soil, and EM for use in wastewater treatment. EM balls help decompose organic matter in wastewater before it is released into surrounding natural water resources. The project is part of the environmental and social responsibility efforts taken by the institute.
The wastewater that has been treated by King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang has been reused for watering plants and use in Agriculture faculty for studying. Using treated water can reduce KMITL water costs.
