POSCO Sets to Reduce Fine Dust With Eco-Friendly Air-Purifying Facility

18 November 2020 

POSCO (CEO Jeong-Woo Choi) has taken the next step towards establishing eco-friendly steelworks by operating an air purification facility that reduces nitrogen oxide emissions.

On November 10, POSCO held a ceremony for the completion of the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) facility at the Pohang Works sintering plant. Soo-Hee Nam, Head of Pohang Works, and Kang-Duk Lee, Pohang’s mayor, were present at the event.

Nitrogen oxide is an air pollutant that generates fine dust when mixed with water vapor and ozone in the atmosphere. The SCR facility is an air purification facility that utilizes a catalyst to decompose nitrogen oxide (NOx) contained in the combustion gas into nitrogen (N2) and water vapor (H2O).
