Eco-friendly Volunteer Work

Saving Energy, Reducing CO2 Emission

At LOTTE FOODS, we make every effort to reduces CO2 emissions, the major cause of air pollution and global warming.

Newer, more eco-friendly cold top vehicles
LOTTE FOODS cold top vehicles have better defrosting efficiency and shorter defrosting time, which reduces energy consumption and exhaust gas emissions. Currently, all our vehicles have been replaced with new cold top vehicles for more sustainable environmental management. Advanced cold top vehicle
Solar energy collecting system
LOTTE FOODS introduced a solar energy collecting system in the Cheonan Factory as an energy source for its dormitory.The steam generated by the boiler was replaced by the heat source produced by the solar energy collecting system to conserve energy. Solar PanelInternal System
Eco-friendly Manufacturing Process
Dry Ice Condensing Vacuum System( D.I.C)
LOTTE FOODS uses a state-of-the-art refining technology known as Dry Ice Condensing Vacuum System to enhance product quality by lowering the content of trans-acids and preventing the loss of active substances such as tocopherol. This system requires less heat, thus reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
ㆍBenefits of Dry Ice Condensing Vacuum System
DIC was adopted to ensure condensing vacuum conditions for low-temperature odor control. The system maintains efficiency by creating a vacuum environment, improving oxidation stability and food flavor to produce low-trans food. It also preserves active substances such as tocopherol. Deodorizer
