Chemical Plant

  OutLine

Chemical plant team conducts process development including lab scale test, design and O&M. The team carries out feasibility study with marketing research.


The team and its members have participated in the projects for the development of KOGAS DME process from lab scale test, simulation, engineering design, feasibility study and O&M. The team also conducted the feasibility study for Daewoo Ship and Marine Engineering and operation of GTL pilot plant for Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology.
