HOME Environment Management Enviro Management Air Pollution Control
Under a joint project with schools in the local community, Hanwha Techwin is implementing measures to continuously enhance the working environment at its production sites and reduce emissions of air pollutants, by, for instance, improving hoods used for ammonia gas released during plating processes and installing dual air cleaning units.
Previously, chemical storage tanks in our production sites had exposed vents that were placed indoors. During the feed of chemicals, acid mist and other pollutants were released into the atmosphere, undermining the safety of the workplace. Chemical storage tanks at Hanwha Techwin now have a dual structure, and chemical fumes are released through a scrubber so as to reduce human exposure to toxic gases and more efficiently eliminate air pollutants. As a result, the level of concentration of air pollutant emissions has been significantly lowered.
Noise produced from machine rooms and air vent lines is a serious pollution affecting not only workers onsite, but also those on neighboring workplaces. At Hanwha Techwin, we effectively cut down the level of noise by installing silencers at six areas including machine rooms and air vent lines, located outside job sites.
