K-water to construct an environmental energy center in Sihwa and Banwol Industrial Complex'한국수자원공사, 환경에너지센터 추진'

[The Hwankyung Ilbo] The K-water will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of an environmental energy center to improve the atmospheric environment, such as odor and fine dust, on June 8 in the Sihwa district.

Most of the 15,000 companies in the Sihwa and Banwol Industrial Complex are small-scale enterprises, and air pollution is increasing due to their inability to replace the activated carbon without pollution control function in time.

To solve this problem, the K-water will invest a total of 39 billion won in the construction of an environmental energy center that recycles waste activated carbon at low cost and supplies it to companies.

Waste activated carbon recycling is a technology to regenerate waste activated carbon in a condition similar to that of new activated carbon by applying heat of 150 ~ 200 ℃ to waste activated carbon and separating pollutants. It is economical because it can regenerate more than 100 times.

The recycled activated carbon is supplied at about 70% of the prices of new product, which reduces the cost of replacing activated carbon and helps reduce air pollutant emissions.

The K-water estimates that this project will reduce 60% of the odor emissions of Sihwa and Banwol Industrial Complex, 40 tons of fine dust per year, and reduce the companies’ purchase price of activated carbon by about 3 billion won.
