font size    

A patent in weather modification by royal rainmaking technology will be presented to Thailand's revered King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the world's longest-reigning monarch.

Issued by the European Patent Office (EPO) on October 12 last year, the patent has been officially recognized in 30 countries including Austria, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Germany.

Prof Anont Boonyarattanavej, the secretary general of the Thailand Research Fund (TRF), said his office has been requesting an audience with the King to present the patent to the beloved monarch. By far, King Bhumibol is the world's first and only holder of patent in rainmaking.

According to Anont, TRF has processed the applications for the patents in foreign countries for the King since the Royal Household Bureau informed it of His Majesty's wish, The Nation website reported Thursday.

In Thailand, the Intellectual Property Department has issued the patent in the rainmaking technology for King Bhumibol on June 2, 2003.
