Hyundai Promotes Eco-Friendly Steel Plant [Video]
This facility was built from the ground up to build some of the strongest automotive steel in the world while also polluting the environment as little as possible. As part of its efforts to build a “world-class eco-friendly steelworks,” Hyundai has built the world’s first enclosed raw material processing system.
all movement of materials from ship to processing facilities occur on enclosed conveyor belts. In addition, the materials are stored in dome-shaped stores cutting off all contact with open air, addressing the problem of dust from coal and other materials, which is the biggest air polluter when it comes to steelworks.
“In addition, unlike open air storage, our facilities do not require expensive nets for trapping dust and water treatment works to process rain water that carries away the raw materials,” says a Hyundai Steel official.
