Songwon Industrial Co. Ltd. has announced the start up of its third incinerator and the installation of photovoltaic solar panels at its Ulsan production site.

The new incinerator will be used to burn VOC and to generate steam required by the plant. Two incinerators have been operating for a number of years and are used to safely eliminate chemical residues and waste inherent in the production process of chemical additives. In doing so, steam is generated which is then used as an energy source for the plant, further reducing Songwon’s carbon footprint. This latest, state of the art incinerator features a new patented technology, jointly developed by Songwon and the incinerator supplier eTEC, and is designed to drastically reduce any risk of explosion.

In addition Songwon has completed the installation of its first set of photovoltaic solar panels at its Ulsan plant. These solar panels have been installed to reduce consumption of energy derived from nonrenewable energy sources.

Jongho Park, Chairman and CEO of Songwon Industrial Co., Ltd. commented: “We have stated many times that safety and environmental protection are key primary concerns of Songwon. These two new investments prove our commitment to continue to work in this direction. Songwon is committed to leadership on many fronts and our technological strength has been a major contributing factor in being able to develop a necessary plant process to be more efficient and safer. We are very proud to demonstrate that the chemical industry can contribute to the global effort to reduce energy consumption.”
