LG Hausys conducts and publishes regular environmental audits along with energy consumption analyses. Thanks to the use of non-polluting fuels, greenhouse gas emissions have been cut by 15,000 tons per year since 2008.
Aluminium tri-hydroxide, the main component of HI-MACS®, is a bi-product of aluminium production.
The production of this material is marked by an excellent energy balance. In addition, HI-MACS® plants in Cheongju (Korea) and Atlanta (USA) meet all environmental standards.
The material allows for virtually waste-free processing.
The material is transported from the USA to Europe exclusively by ship. Within Europe, HI-MACS® observes the Euro-5 standards for reduced particulate emissions. The partner-network of LG Hausys Europe is selected thoroughly: the transport partner for Europe guarantees recycling of waste water, uses solar energy in the warehouse and trucks that run on gas. Therefore the LG Hausys-partner was awarded with the Green Truck Award 2013.
