INCHEON, Apr. 4 (Korea Bizwire) — The Sudokwon Landfill Site Management Corp. (SLC) will deliver air purification plants to 1,568 classrooms at local elementary schools by making use of food waste water.
The SLC announced on Wednesday that it will hold a “Save our Seasons” campaign to deliver air purification plants to local elementary schools along with social innovation companies Tree Planet Inc. and Hyundai Motor Co.
It provided five air purification plants per class to 1,568 classes at 44 elementary schools in Incheon.
The company delivered four different types of air purified plants that are effective at absorbing fine dust, including areca palms and parlour palms.
It also provided 170 herbs grown using food waste water as souvenirs for all first-year students at the school.
The SLC utilized waste water from food waste collected from three metropolitan cities and a province– Seoul, Gyeonggi and Incheon – to grow these plants.
The company produces biogas from food waste, of which it receives 500 tons per day, and uses it as heating fuel for about 10 greenhouses in the Seoul metropolitan area.
The campaign, which was launched in partnership with the Ministry of Environment, will start in the western part of Incheon, where the landfill is located, and expand to other regions.
Following the SLC, Hyundai Motor will continue its campaign in the form of relay donations.
Later this year, it plans to select an elementary school in the western part of Incheon for the proceeds of air purification plants and pet trees sold by Tree Planet to create a “fine dust safety school forest.”
