To that end, the company plans to use more renewable energy, develop more eco-friendly chemical products and operate energy storage system (ESS) facilities that utilize recycled secondary battery cells.
In its first step toward carbon neutral growth, LG Chem has initiated a renewable energy 100 (RE100) program at its plants worldwide.
The company will also concentrate on developing carbon capture utilization storage (CCUS) and creating a circular economic system that recycles its products, including batteries, and waste.
LG Chem ia also aiming for Underwriters Laboratory (UL) Landfill Zero certification for achieving at least a 90 pct diversion from landfills. (Source: LG Chem, PR, Korea Times, July, 2020) Contact: LG Chem, +82 (2) 3773-6951, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.lgchem.com
