We lead the protection of a clean environment for the people through minimization of waste production, recycling byproducts into resources, and with stable treatment.
Recycling of Coal Ash
Coal is fed into the boiler after pulverization. Remnants after combustion at 1,500±200℃ are called Coal ash. 26-50% of coal ash is produced with domestic (anthracite) coal, and 8-15% with bituminous coal.

Effect of recycling desulfurized gypsum
High quality desulfurized gypsum and other industrial resource recycling has the effect of resource substitution at the national level, provides reclamation cost saving through complete resource utilization, and prevents possible secondary environmental contamination (scattered dust or leachate) after reclamation, making a contribution to the improvement of the electricity business through the assurance of a long-term and stable profit.
