In ENVEX 2021, the global news network AVING News selected companies to receive the BEST OF ENVEX 2021 award.
For this award, AVING News selected outstanding products based on product technology, innovation, marketability, design, and audience response. The companies will get separate news articles so that they can utilize it, and the news will also be posted in English.
The 42nd International Exhibition on Environmental Technology & Green Energy (ENVEX 2021), Korea’s longest-running and largest UFI-certified environment trade show, was held from July 8 to 10 at COEX, Gangnam-gu, Seoul.
ENVEX 2021, which started in 1979 and now celebrating its 42nd anniversary this year, was held with 243 companies from 15 countries including the US, China and Europe participating by video conferencing. This year’s event showcased technologies in the environmental industry and technology fields such as water quality, air quality, and waste, as well as green energy fields from carbon neutral and green new deal companies such as solar power, small hydropower, and geothermal heat. Especially, green innovative technologies from companies with decarbonization and green new deal technologies received new attention.
As the exhibition was canceled last year to prevent COVID-19 from spreading, ENVEX was held for the first time in two years
to help companies that suffered difficulties such as low sales and imbalanced supply and demand during this period of pandemic to expand their sales channels.
The selected companies for BEST OF ENVEX 2021 are as follows. △Daeshin MC △Samhwa △Hwajin Industry
| Daeshin MC participates in ENVEX 2021… “Blocks harmful environment with a solution to remove pollution like dust and particles!”
Founded in 1997, Daeshin MC is a company that develops, manufactures and sells sanitary equipment. Its main products include sole check, shoe bottom cleaner, and caster cleaner that cleans the wheels of the cart. It customer base is in the industrial field (electricity, electronics, semiconductors, food, pharmaceuticals, automobile factories) and public institutions (schools, hospitals, government offices, kindergartens, sports facilities, nursing homes, military bases).
In this exhibition, Daeshin MC showcased the pollution removal solution. Solecheck is the world’s first developed dry type module grating mat. It is installed in the entrance of the building or factories, and it inhales dust and debris from the sole of the shoe just by walking on the suction mat. Dust and harmful substances are sucked into the dust collector, improving indoor air quality by blocking the transfer of harmful substances such as viruses into the room. Easy maintenance makes it easy to replace the parts.
The wet type shoe bottom washer detects when people step on the machine’s brush with a sensor and cleans the shoe floor with water, detergent, and brush. After that, the bottom of the shoe is dried with an absorbent mat that absorbs water strongly so that people can enter inside the building with clean shoes.
Director Choi Yu-na of Daeshin MC said, “In the future, we are going to promote the status of ‘Made in Korea’ products in the global market and strive to develop products to protect people from harmful environments.”
| Samhwa announces ECO 202 Pump that reduces environmental load at ENVEX 2021
Samhwa, a member of the World Class 300, mainly produces container packaging for household goods and pharmaceuticals. As a promising SME that has business with most domestic cosmetics companies and 10 major overseas companies, it is equipped with an all-in-house system that directly manufactures the entire value chain related to cosmetic container packaging manufacturing.
The ECO 202 Pump which Samhwa exhibited this time was researched and developed by applying a high-quality, high-functionality material with a specific gravity of less than 1g/㎤ that can replace elastomer to increase the recyclability and circulation. It is an eco-friendly product that reduces environmental load by easy separation of PET containers and materials. It also helps lower production costs (mold, assembly, and recycling costs) through the integration and reduction of parts.
The Eco Slim Airless, Eco Airless, and Glass Refill Airless & Dispenser with ECO Pump are made for containing cosmetic products such as liquid foundation, cream, essence, and hair and body products. The discharge per time ranges from 0.15-3.5CC.
Bae Hyo-yong, Assistant Manager of Samhwa, said, “The company is developing and manufacturing eco-friendly products in line with the current trend of the times, and we are expecting a good response in the market. We are planning to expand our lineup by starting with small capacity pumps and gradually move onto large-capacity pumps.”
He continued, “On our website, we have a feature that allows you to experience the desired product in 3D simulation. You can try our product and even request for quotation, so please use our system.”
| Hwajin Industry to introduce PO Wrap, a food film free from harmful substances and residual VCM at ENVEX 2021
Hwajin Industry’s PO Wrap stands for polyolefin. It is a food film to replace difficult-to-recycle PVC wrap. Specialized for food packaging, there are no harmful substances and residual Vinyl Chloride Monomer (VCM).
