Efforts to Reduce Environmental Impact
We are engaged in wastewater and atmospheric emission gas regulation compliance.
In 2014, we received two notices for exceeding the regulatory wastewater value (wastewater pH and oil).
In 2015 we received one wastewater regulation notice (pH), and carried out focused countermeasures for exceeding environmental regulations.
In 2016, since we have reduced the environmental impact, we will analyze our generation of industrial waste.
