Busan Port Authority (BPA) along with Hyundai Materials shake their hands and signed an agreement in order to drop the toxic particles levels at the Port of Busan.
Through their collaboration, BPA will expand the supply of transfer crane exhaust gas after-treatment system, which drops a crane’s diesel exhaust gases by 80%.
BPA will continue to work to improve Busan’s air quality and working environment for port workers by preemptively developing technologies so that Busan Port can be operated with green unloading equipment.
…as Nam Ki-chan, CEO of BPA, stated.
Although all 239 cranes in Busan New Port are powered by electricity, 37 out of the 122 cranes in the North Port still run on diesel and emit gases such as sulphur.
In light of the above, BPA developed an exhaust gas after-treatment system, which collects and treats exhaust gases from diesel transfer cranes, together with the Korea Institute of Machinery & Materials and Hyundai Materials.
