MOI Joins Hands with NEDO to Show an Integrated Car Wreck Management
Ministry of Industry, in collaboration with New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization of Japan (NEDO), puts on a show of the country’s significantly big project in pushing the “End of Life Vehicle (ELV) Project” in order to promote the energy and natural resource conservations by focusing on the efficient car wreck management, reducing the environmental impact with an aim to lead the Thai industry to the Bio-Circular-Green (BCG) model with potential that responds to the needs of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Mr. Suriya Chuengroongruangkit, Ministry of Industrial revealed that the government had defined a new economic model called “BCG” or Bio-Circular-Green Economy to be the main guideline for developing and upgrading Thai industries in accordance with the sustainable national development
goals. In this respect, Ministry of Industry has placed the importance on said guidelines to be line with the policy to promote the use of Electric Vehicles (EVs) where the target to manufacture EVs by 2030 was set at 30% of the domestic automotive manufactures to achieve the goal of the effectively environmental pollution reductions.
As for an adoption of EVs for full use, the important thing that Ministry of Industry is compulsorily required to take concrete steps all along at the same time is to take into account the comprehensive management of the end-of-life vehicles to reduce the environmental impact which is in line with the Circular Economy by bringing back the relevant materials and parts to make most use of them. As such, Ministry of Industry therefore cooperates with NEDO to carry out the End of Life Vehicle or ELV Project in order to promote the conservations of energy and natural resources.
