Our Efforts

Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Improved compressor operation efficiency [TAIYO YUDEN CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY]

We run more than one compressor to supply compressed air to production lines. The usage of compressed air depends on the operation status of each production line.
To control the operation of compressors according to the required amount of compressed air, TAIYO YUDEN CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY modified the system by introducing equipment such as a control board for controlling the number of compressors.
This improvement has resulted in optimal operation of compressors, eliminating unnecessary electricity consumption.
TAIYO YUDEN CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY reduced GHG emissions 150 tons-CO2e/year.

Power saving through a shift to LED lights
[KOREA KYONG NAM TAIYO YUDEN and TAIYO YUDEN Mobile Technology]

KOREA KYONG NAM TAIYO YUDEN has replaced 265 mercury lamps installed in the wastewater treatment plant with LED lights and TAIYO YUDEN Mobile Technology did the same for 7,143 fluorescent lamps. Compared with mercury lamps, LED lights consume a very small amount of power, leading to reduced CO2 emissions.
They reduced GHG emissions by 400 tons-CO2e/year.

Reducing Water Use

Water usage reduction based on inverter control [KOREA KYONG NAM TAIYO YUDEN]

KOREA KYONG NAM TAIYO YUDEN has introduced inverters to control the RPM of pumps that supply the water used in all facilities in the factory, including infrastructure and welfare facilities. This has enabled the company to make adjustments to achieve optimal flow rates and pressures, reducing its water usage. It has reduced water usage by 2,300 tons/year.
