The steam provided by Veolia to Hongwon Paper Manufacturing, the fourth main company on the printing paper market in South Korea, will allow the company to produce 350,000 million tons of paper per year and coat 150,000 million tons of paper per year.
This contract follows the acquisition by Veolia of the boiler facility which has the capacity to produce 330,000 tons of steam per year. Under this contract, Veolia will improve the overall performance of heat production, especially combustion quality. This will further reduce the facility’s CO2 emissions of 3%. It contributes to rise to the challenge of greenhouse gas reduction in South Korea.
Régis Calmels, Veolia Senior Executive Vice President, Asia said: “This is Veolia’s first energy services contract in South Korea. It is a starting point for Veolia to develop its business in Asia’s promising energy field, whose the growth opens up new perspectives to reinforce the performance of energy facilities.”
