SAMPYO Cement positively presses ahead with an environmentfriendly industry through continued efforts for improvement of environmental technology.

In 1996, we became the first Korean cement business to get the ISO 14001 certification and started operating an environmental management system in production, sales and distribution. In 1998, we received the Grand Prize from the Korea Federation for Environmental Movement for its conspicuous role on the efforts for environmentfriendly management. In 2002, we were selected as an exemplary business in the efforts for reduction of waste, the first of its kind among cement businesses.

Resource recycling - Operation of waste heat recovery power plant
The waste heat recovery power plant, built by SAMPYO Cement in 2004, uses wasted hot gas produced in the cement production process for power generation of 19.7MW or 130,000MWh/year, supplying 13.5% of the whole power requirement of our Samcheok factory. The power plant contributes to environmental conservation through reduction of carbon dioxide.

Air pollution management - TMS (Tele-Metering System)
We thoroughly controls pollutants of dust and nitric oxide by monitoring of TMS, sharing data with relevant government offices for minimization of pollutant emission and developing environmentalfriendly relationship with the local community.

Water quality management - Zero discharge wastewater system
Our Samcheok factory is operating a zero discharge wastewater system that reuses all of the wastewater (i.e. 23,000 tons/day) through the recycling process of sedimentation, filtering and dehydration, in an effort for prevention of pollution of water.

Waste management - Efforts for conservation of waste into resources
We recycles byproducts generated from semiconductors, the iron & steel industry and power plants as raw materials for cement production, in addition to having bunker-C oil replaced by recycled or Re-refined oil, and using used tires and combustible wastes for fuel, thus reducing the import of bituminous coals.

Quarry development - Efforts for environmental conservation and rehabilitation
At our quarry in Samcheok, where the open pit-mining method is used, we are making efforts for rehabilitation of used quarries based in the rehabilitation examples of Japanese and European businesses in an effort to restore environmental damage. Trees have been planted on about 17% of the developed area.
