DeNOx catalyst in KOMIPO and Boryeong Power Co.
- Expected to replace import using proprietary DeNOx catalyst technology
- Win-win business by inviting SME for mass production

Korea, large importers of catalyst for power generation, can now source within its own market. SK Corp. has completed performance test using its DeNOx catalyst in KOMIPO (Korea Midland Power Co.) and Boryeong Power Co. for the first time and began live operation.

SK Corp.’s DeNOx catalyst, which is selective catalyst reduction (SCR), coverts NOx from power generation and chemical plant into nitrogen & water. This pollution preventing catalyst has long been dependent on technologies owned by advanced countries, e.g., US, Japan and Europe, leading massive import by large users in Korea.

However, SK Corp. has finally succeeded in developing DeNOx catalyst after 7 years of effort leveraging its core capability in catalyst area.

DeNOx catalyst development has important implication since it was joint collaboration between large corporation and SME. After successful development of nitration catalyst in 2000, SK Corp. provided its technology and equipment to Nano Corp. for mass production. Both companies began to produce catalyst which led to supply contract of 1,000 ton to domestic power generations in Boryeong, Hadong, Taean, and Incheon last June.

SK Corp. now has plans to enter China based on its Korean reference with a bold plant to create over 100 billion won in sales by 2010 in Korea and China, which has market size of 60 billion and 500 billion won, respectively.
