SONGWON Industrial Co., Ltd. reported some of its successful in-house sustainability efforts relating to both energy conservation and efficiency and emphasized its commitment to the environment across the organization.

At SONGWON’s Panoli site in Gujarat, India, the company’s hub for specialty chemicals, both energy efficiency and conservation has been at the top of the agenda.

“The plant team has been concentrating its efforts on developing effective actions directly intended to conserve energy in the area of electricity but also natural gas which will dramatically reduce emissions and benefit the organization with cost savings too,” said Byungsoo Boo, leader operations.

According to Boo, SONGWON has also begun replacing its natural gas-fired steam boiler at the Panoli facility with an agro-waste fired steam boiler. When completed it will mean a shift from non-renewable energy to renewable energy with considerable expected savings and a substantial contribution to the reduction of harmful emissions.

Meanwhile in Korea, at SONGWON’s manufacturing facility in Ulsan, the company has been replacing the metal-halide lights throughout the plant with LED.

Because LED lights are more energy-efficient, using only approximately 10 percent of the energy a metal-halide needs and have a much longer service life, the plant has succeeded in reducing energy consumption as well as overall costs.

In four years, SONGWON said it expects the switch to save 1,884 TCO2 and 425 MW/Y.

Also in the U.S., Songwon International – Americas Inc., located in Houston, has transferred the office's energy source to fully renewable energy and is offsetting 100 percent of the business’ electricity usage with third party verified Renewable Energy Certificates.

“One of the foundations of our sustainability strategy is to make sure that we endeavor to make all of our business activities as environmentally and economically sustainable as possible," said Olivier Keiser, chief sustainability officer at SONGWON. "In line with this, we are continually looking inside the organization in our drive to optimize processes, source more efficiently and use resources to reduce SONGWON’s environmental impact. These are just a few examples of some of our most recent successful undertakings.”
