Longshun Second Plant Expects to Complete in Late 2023
Release Date 17 Apr 2023 Mandarin
Longshun Green Energy Technology Ltd. (Longshun), a leading domestic company for producing renewable energy products from flammable solid waste, has returned to its hometown of Kaohsiung and established a second plant in the Ho-Fa Industrial Park. It is expected to start production by the end of the year and will become the largest production area in Taiwan.
Longshun’s core technology can convert waster into combustion rods for energy at a 1:1 ratio, making it the first legally registered factory in Taiwan for “solid recovered fuel (SRF).” Its key technology can convert 100% of waste plastics and textiles into pollution-free combustion rods that meet the highest international standards without adding adhesive.
The technology is guided by Professor Tai, Hua-Shan of Safety, Health and Environmental Engineering Department (SHE). Longshun is Taiwan’s first and largest circular economy enterprise, and every step they take is noteworthy.
Longshun has obtained multiple patents for its key technologies, which have become solid pillars for expanding its market. Chief Technical Officer Oliver Yeh pointed out that Longshun’s technology can effectively assist government departments, business organizations, and used clothing recyclers in dealing with difficult-to-dispose high-calorific-value waste such as waste plastics and textiles (including used clothing).
The finished product SRF is 100% converted, pollution-free, and meeting the highest international standards, not limited to combustion performance. Its economic benefits and environmentally friendly advantages are equivalent to the best alternative to obtaining energy from coal.
This is a high-quality option for companies to promote ESG, and Yuen Foong Yu Paper Manufacturing Co., Ltd is also one of the long-term supporting partners.
Although the founding team members of Longshun are around their 30s or early 40s, they have strong technical skills and are good at utilizing big data management in their business operations.
This brings innovation and flexibility advantages to traditional industries, where customer needs can be analyzed through big data to provide customized solutions such as ingredient blending.
The company’s first SRF manufacturing plant was established in Liuying District, Tainan, and its second plant has now chosen in Ho-Fa Industrial Park, Kaohsiung, in 2023, which is expected to be completed after October, with an annual output value of about NT$750 million and a production capacity of approximately 120,000 tons per year.
This means the company can consume 120,000 tons of waste each year, equivalent to the carbon absorption of 240 Daan Forest Parks.
As all the founding members of Longshun are from Kaohsiung, the completion of Longshun second plant in Kaohsiung is a big event for the city and also for the University.
