Samsung Display’s new headquarters in Asan, South Korea, is expected to be completed in the second half of 2024. Samsung is celebrating Earth Day by announcing that 34% of the cement used in the construction of the new headquarters is recycled.
Samsung Display says it has been recycling glass waste from its manufacturing process since 2008 and has already recycled a total of 245,000 tonnes, enough to create a beach comparable to Haeundae in Busan.
Samsung Display says that 1 ton of glass waste can be recycled into 0.8 tons of sand and that 20,000 tons of cement, or 34%, were recycled during the construction of Samsung Display’s new headquarters.
Samsung Display press release that the production of OLED panels produces less glass waste than LCD panels and that Samsung Display will also increase the recycling rate of waste glass.
