The eco-friendly tracking the light of the sun LED streetlamps are cross the street from the Haneoul Garden. Because this solar panel of the streetlamps can move up and down and left, and right, it can gather the solar heat by tracking the sun. Also, because it is kind of an automatic flickering system, the streetlights go on at sunset when brightness of the surroundings is under the 4 lux, and they go off at sunrise. This is a system which can even save the solar radiation energy.

The grass carp and the silver carp could settle for the first time in Korea by being reproduced artificially in 1963. Also, PKNU took the lead in developing the fancy carp in Korea in the mid-60s. In addition, PKNU solidified the foundation of breeding by studying the ideal temperature on rearing of Japanese eel. Moreover, PKNU succeeded in the development of the highbred Tilapia, the facility for them, and their feed. Especially, PKNU is trying to develop the new technology to prevent the environmental pollution while farming them by developing very large scale recirculating culture system.
