Sustainability has been a globally trending theme for the past few years. However, at Pan-Continental Chemical, it is not just a theme but our responsibility. We are committed to striving for a better tomorrow by implementing sustainability solutions, promoting eco-friendly innovations, and conducting third-party inspections.
We have been implementing upgrades in our factories to incorporate environmentally friendly equipment, aiming to reduce power consumption and carbon emissions. These efforts include the installation of solar panels, utilization of high-efficiency heat exchangers and pumps, and the replacement of conventional light bulbs with LEDs. These initiatives result in an annual electricity savings of over 500,000 kWh, equivalent to the energy consumption of 138 households in Taiwan. Furthermore, our boiler replacements have led to a reduction of 1,224 tons of carbon emissions per year.
In order to offer green and sustainable chemistry products, our innovative Active Zinc Oxide, CS AZO product utilizes a process that is not only proprietary but also eco-friendly. Carbon emissions emitted while producing the CS product is only 20% of conventional zinc oxide.
