Thailand is facing a major flood causing more than 500 death and millions of affected people.
The flooding has been affected approximately six million hectares of land, in 58 provinces from Chiang Mai in the North to areas of the capital city, Bangkok.
The flood control comittee of the government leading by the Ministrer of Defence and the Vice Minister of Natural Resources and Environment, requested our partner in Thailand, EMRO Asia to cooperate in a joint project to apply EM Technology™ in 12 inundated disposal sites to control the stench as a part of the floods countermeasures.
In doing this, EM tanks were prepared in the army base of Lopburi province, central Thailand to produce Activated EM•1® to be used in the relevant disposal sites and also to be distributed freely to the people in need.
Last October 20th, the staff of EMRO Asia along with the army personnel has inspected the affected areas toured by a helicopter.

After the opening ceremony on October 29th, to launch the project rescuing the affected dump sites, around 25 military vehicles carried 200,000 liters of Activated EM•1® and 50,000 EM mudballs to be applied to the landfills of Phitsanulok province.
200,000 liters of Activated EM and 50,000 EM mudballs have been injected into the landfills of Phitsanulok province.
Today Thai people are making EM mudballs volunteerly everywhere in the country to contribute to the control of bad odors and sanitary condition in the flooded areas.
Below, views of the EM mudballs movement of volunteers joining EMRO Asia staff.
Further, the royal army in joint program with EMRO Asia has installed EM tanks around Bangkok for free distribution.
They are providing 20,000 liters of Activated EM•1® per day.
