KIST and Isu Chemical Unite Through Green Bio and New Energy Technologies
The Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST; President: Dr. Seok-Jin Yoon) and Isu Chemical (CEO: Mr. Seung-ho Lyu) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on May 24 at KIST’s headquarters in Seoul.
Smart farm and clean energy-related technologies are strategic and essential technologies for building a sustainable future. In particular, the development of technologies for high-value-added foods and drugs based on natural products is essential for Korean companies looking to enter the global market.
For its part, KIST has developed such fundamental technologies through initiatives such as its “Development of High Value-Added Smart Plant Factory System” and “Carbon to X” programs. Based on KIST’s accumulated research capabilities, KIST and Isu have decided to cooperate on (1) developing natural materials and smart farm production technologies, and (2) developing new materials and technologies for clean energy, and exchanging personnel resources.
As a follow-up to the agreement, a joint research project is being planned based on KIST’s Smart Farm test bed to develop plant-based functional natural product manufacturing and raw material standardization technologies. In addition, research cooperation will continue in the fields of next-generation secondary batteries and hydrogen fuel cells, hydrogen storage and transportation, and carbon dioxide capture and conversion (CCU).
The President of KIST, Dr. Yoon, stated, “Through this agreement, we will continue to work together with companies such as Isu so that KIST's excellent technologies can have a tangible impact on industries.”
