On 3 May, 2013 – The Faculty of Engineering held press conference for "The High Pressure Digester Developing Project". This project belongs to Department of Industrial Engineering.
Pimwalun Sutakhote, a lecturer of Industrial Engineering Department and she holds as a head of The High Pressure Digester Developing Project states that "The National Metal and Materials Technology Center (MTEC) supports budget to create High Pressure Digester. This machine can digest organic materials into small pieces, distill essential oils, and digest the high pressure organic materials. Moreover, this machine can add value of agricultural materials, organic materials for producing various products".
Asst. Prof. Chalaem Phodaeng, the member of inventors and the owner of this machine states that "The High Pressure Digester has excellent function. Normally, digestion of organic materials requires heat and the products might have less nutrition. The key point is this machine can digest organic materials without heat, pressure is applied instead and the products still have complete nutrition".
