[The Hwankyung Ilbo] The Ministry of Environment announced that it will make a special inspection of the plant that emits ozone-related substance using cutting-edge technology such as drone to reduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and nitrogen oxides (NOx).
This special crackdown was designed to protect the public health as the date of the first announcement of the ozone warning has become faster each year. The ozone warning issued on May 1 last year was issued on April 20 this year.
The target for this special inspection amounts to about 5,000 facilities nationwide that use a large amount of organic solvents such as paint manufacturing facilities and washing facilities, oiling facilities, and oil storage facilities, etc.
As part of this special inspection, the Ministry of the Environment conducted an inspection using drones and mobile measurement vehicles, which are currently being piloted, at about 1,000 volatile organic compound emission sites in the Metropolitan area on May 11.
The special inspection will be carried out by the National Institute of Environmental Research in a way that uses drones and mobile measurement vehicles to measure air pollutant concentrations in the air and ground and crack down on suspected high concentration emission sites.
“Through this special inspection using the drone, we will block illegal activities by reminding them that any company that improperly discharges ozone-causing substances can be cracked at any time,” said an official from the Ministry of Environment.
