  • Resource Use and Pollution Mitigation

Being well aware of our responsibilities for the safe management of toxic substances and chemicals, we have operated a safe management system for chemicals so that we can adhere to the related laws and regulations at home and abroad. For the efficient management, we have educated and trained our employees on the use of hazardous substances and chemicals in coalition with domestic and overseas regulatory authorities. On top of that, all stages ranging from production to product maintenance and waste disposal are evaluated on their riskiness related to chemical use and management.

Toxic Substance Management

LX Semicon has obtained approval for all manufacturing procedures and raw materials, ensuring their safety. We have established internal standards to manage and monitor the records of toxic substances. These efforts allow our customers to use safe products with confidence.

Waste Mitigation Activities

With the objective to minimize waste generation and promote recycling at all our business sites, multifaceted efforts are being made. For example, domestic waste is categorized into recyclable paper bags, PET bottles, and paper for separate disposal. Additionally, we put in place boxes for the collection of PCB substrate and chips generated during the course of design or tests for separate disposal.

Resource Circulation Activities

LX Semicon has joined forces in resource circulation activities in collaboration with NGOs. As part of the efforts, we offered approximately 300 home appliances and IT devices (laptops, desktops, and monitors). And these items were utilized for a recycling project called ‘Urban Mining’ (recycling of general and rare metals). In the years ahead, we will participate in related activities on a regular basis, and take measures to promote resource circulation.
