ARECA ensures safety from air pollution issues
Over 21 hazardous pollutants of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and harmful substances with bad smell come from Mixing and Curing process. “Going green” is generally the trend in the manufacturing sector and India’s tyre market is forecast a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of over 9% during 2016-2021 by Research and Markets.
Growing automobile sales coupled with expanding automobile fleet are the major factors boosting demand for tyres in the country. Though the replacement tyre demand had a majority share in 2015, the OEM tyre demand is expected to outpace replacement tyre demand during 2016-2021. Tyre manufacturers in US, Europe, Japan, Korea, and China have mandated to control and monitor air pollutants. Today, air pollution control system for tyre industry is essential due to tightening compliance standards and increased enforcement. ARECA, a Hansung Sysco company, is ready to provide the best solution for Indian tyre industry to clear this problem.
ARECA, which offers factory air pollution control systems for VOC gas elimination, is another proud brand of Hansung Sysco. It was established as part of Daeyang E&I Co, Ltd., which later became part of Hansung Sysco.
ARECA has been the world’s largest reference in tyre industry over 26 years. The products are major contributors to green technology. The company has been focusing on expanding its own technology and developing the regeneration combustion equipment itself, which is a new way of VOC treatment facility beyond the existing damper way.
The cost-effective import substitution is of high efficiency and has opened up new horizons in the field of domestic environmental facilities. The company has focused on providing the optimum equipment considering characteristic by VOC’s emission source, types, process parameters from the VOC’s emissions. ARECA developed Regenerative thermal oxidation (RTO) system for the first time in Korea and has patents not only Korea and but also Europe, China and Japan and received a CE certificate. It has large-scale system construction capability leading technology and abundant experience from design to maintenance is secured. Through unique technology and experience, ARECA has established long term relationships with key customers such as Hankook Tyre, Kumho Tyre, Samsung, Hyundai Mobis and Chinese national company-Panda-and etc. With its own overseas subsidiaries in China, Europe, Indonesia, and USA, ARECA can handle fast A/S.
Other ARECA products include Regenerative Thermal Oxidation (RTO) – Electronic/Optical/Solar Film, Tape Material, and Protection Sheet; RTO – Petro Chemistry, Print, Chemical Product, Wallpaper, and LCD; Flameless RTO (FRTO) – Food Treatment Gas, Sewage Sludge gas, Semiconductor, LCD; Concentration + FRTO – Coating, Paint, Tyre(Mixing/Curing). ARECA developed the innovative regenerative combustion equipment for VOC gas elimination in 1998. The sustainable development technology ARECA came up with has won several accolades. It was selected as a “Promising Environment Company” and also as a “Global Hidden Champion” by the Korean government.
India’s efforts to minimize air pollution
In 2017, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) of India has strongly requested to observe directions for industries along the Ganga basin that have no yet installed online monitoring systems. In 2016, the Indian government has declared severe levels of toxic air pollution in Delhi an “emergency situation” as administrator announce a plan to temporarily shut construction sites and a coal-fired power station to bring the situation under control.
The Indian government has begun monitoring air quality in India and has taken several measures to minimize air pollution such as creation of infrastructure for industrial pollution control incorporating cleaner production processes and setting up of common pollution control facilities. The trend of Indian air pollution control has toward stronger and important.
The rising air pollution in India is not just a health concern, but has larger implication on the economy too, a World Bank and Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation study has found. The study has found that premature deaths due to air pollution in 2013 cost the global economy about $225 billion in lost labour income, or about $5.11 trillion in welfare losses worldwide. India’s labour losses due to air pollution stood at about $55.39 billion, or about 8.4% of its gross domestic product (GDP). China followed close behind with $44.56 billion, or 2.8% of its GDP. India reported the second highest number of deaths due to air pollution in 2013, next only to China. World Bank reported that air pollution is serious in India than in China. According to WHO, India’s capital Delhi was the most polluted city of more than 1,600 cities in the world and 13 of the 20 most polluted cities are in India.
On 12 December 2015, the participating 195 countries agreed, by consensus, the participating 195 countries agreed, by consensus,(same sentence overlap) to the final global pact, the Paris Agreement, to reduce emissions as part of the method for reducing greenhouse gas. There are two key points of the pact: To reduce their carbon output “as soon as possible” and to do their best to keep global warming “to well below 2 degrees in Celsius”. Indian Government is expected to prepare more strict regulation regarding air pollution for all industries soon.
