On March 4th, 2010, at Tropical Garden Resort Kata Beach, Assoc. Prof. Saman Sane-ngam from the Faculty of Engineering, Prince of Songkla University, presided over a seminar called “How to add value in trash, wind, water, and sunlight”. There were leaders from local administrative organizations in the north and northeast of Thailand attending the seminar.
All the attendees were led to visit Phuket Municipality Incinerator to see trash management which they can later adapt to use in their communities. Assoc. Prof. Saman said that there are four ways of effective trash management:
1. trash classification, 2. proper time of trash collection, 3. adding value to trash and 4. using trash in new inventions.
