The goal of MIRDC

Is to promote the development and upgrading of metals and related industries in the country.

To achieve this goal

The Centre carries out research and development and provides an array of services for technology transfer to the industrial community.

TASS 2021 Asia’s Sustainable Supply & Circular Economy Conference and Exhibition is coming up

"TASS 2021 Asia’s Sustainable Supply & Circular Economy Conference and Exhibition" is opening to the public at the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center from November 10th to November 12th. The theme of the conference and exhibition will be focusing on net zero emissions, renewable energy, and sustainable finance. MIRDC also participated this year and cannot wait to demonstrate the public our long-term commitment to provide R&D and application services for the total solution of the metal industry with “Recycling Metal • Leading the Future”. In recent years, the Department of Industrial Technology of the Ministry of Economic Affairs has proactively promoted the recycling of aluminum materials to enhance the value of recycled aluminum metal products. It has also improved the metal cases of 3C products and invested in the localization of 5G communication and satellite carrier application materials. MIRDC would take this opportunity to have the 15 research and development technologies displayed through this exhibition. People from the industry are welcome to visit and exchange new technologies, and new business opportunities are hopefully to be expanded.

"Net-Zero Emissions" has become the most popular sustainable strategy term in 2021. The Department of Industrial Technology of the Ministry of Economic Affairs has worked closely with MIRDC to pinpoint the material side. Taking the foaming aluminum casting technology as an example, the use of full recycling aluminum, it can not only be used in electric vehicle power module frame, filled with foaming aluminum casting to improve vibration reduction, but also can be used as structural materials and functional materials in the future, such as sound insulation and heat insulation such as building materials etc., in response to international trends to assist the industry in increasing the annual processing volume of recycled aluminum materials and increasing the value of recycled aluminum products.

As far as manufacturing is concerned, due to the introduction of the concept of green process, combined with aluminum alloy warm/hot forming technology, it can be applied to structural parts such as car door anti-collision beams, solving the problem that the existing cold forming is easy to cause sheet parts to break, and the dimensional accuracy difficulties that are not easy to control, which have resulted in a 50% increase in overall production efficiency and a 60% reduction in waste. Chiu-Feng Lin, the President of MIRDC has stated that the demonstration production line constructed by MIRDC will assist the industry in applying the technology in aerospace and rail vehicles to demonstrate the circular economy business model and high-value products to provide solutions for the establishment of Taiwan sustainable supply.

In addition, the exhibited technologies include artificial corals made from waste stone and discarded oyster shells to transform environmental waste into innovative green materials. The process is controlled to form high-temperature-resistant casting and recycled ceramic shell mold materials. It can also be combined with 3D printing technology for coral restoration and restoration of historical sites. This technology has not only been successfully used in industrial casting, but has also cooperated with the National Museum of Marine Science & Technology to attract marine microorganisms to attach to artificial corals. The future ecological reconstruction of artificial reefs is just around the corner! Find out more about MIRDC, which will display the highlight technology and actual exhibits at booth S1209, just come to Kaohsiung Exhibition Center from November 10th to November 12th while visiting the "TASS Asia’s Sustainable Supply & Circular Economy Conference and Exhibition".
