Asian countries’ inventions


ACTIVITY 2: READ THE TEXT AND FIND OUT NEW WORDS.

There is quite a long list of important inventions from Asian countries that help people.
The Chinese invented paper, chopsticks and gun powder. The Japanese invented instant
noodles and video games. In many Southeast Asian nations, agriculture is the main
economic activity and pollution is a major problem. That is why there have been other
important inventions to deal with these issues. Thai people, for example, have contributed
to environmental protection and benefited farmers, who depend on water for their crops.
Below are three significant inventions from a well respected Thai inventor, King Bhumibol
Adulyadej.


ACTIVITY 2: READ THE TEXT AND ANSWER FIND OUT NEW WORDS.

The king's Chaipattana Aerator was patented in 1993 and has won several
international awards. This is a kind of paddle-wheel machine that helps to add
oxygen to the wastewater to 'clean' it before it is reused for farming.
In 1999 and 2003, he obtained Thai patents for his rain-making techniques. In
addition to helping agriculture directly, these techniques have helped to
increase the volume of water in rivers and streams and improved forest
conditions.
The king's biodiesel oil project was first introduced in 2001. Its aim is to turn
palm oil into biodiesel as an alternative source of energy. Biodiesel is a good
choice for an alternative fuel, at a time when Thailand needs to reduce its use
of fossil energy to protect the environment.
