Frame of Image ization of the BRICs countries,
massive energy consumption and air pollution emissions, especially GHGs(Green house gases such as CO2), are expected. Therefore, global environmental regulations have been strengthened and the response to climate change has become an urgent global issue. CO2 emission reduction has become a hot issue for major materials-related industries like chemical and steel making industries. With limited indigenous energy resources, Korea relies heavily on the imports of oil, natural gas and coal. Recent oil price hikes have raised government concern on energy security issues. Korea had instituted a number of measures throughout the energy supply chain and end-use sectors for reducing energy imports and enhancing energy supply security. Industry has been required to meet stringent regulations on energy efficiency. Korea is also pursuing to increase energy market efficiency through deregulation and the establishment of an environmentally friendly energy supply chain. Korea is now setting up its National Energy Vision 2030, emphasizing foreign energy resource development, energy efficiency enhancement and RD&D(Research development and demonstration) of
renewable energies. Among the tasks for solving Korea’s energy and environmental problems, one of the most important issues is setting-up an eco-efficient structure for energy-intensive industries like petrochemicals and steel production. This article summarizes the greening issues of those energy-intensive ma
