THAILAND: SCG Chemicals investing to develop Rayong as 1st Thai eco-friendly industrial estate

Pilot projects at its Rayong Olefins Co. and Thai Polyethylene Co. subsidiaries recently resulted in the Federation of Thai Industries certifying their facilities as the "first-ever” eco factories in Thailand.

The investment included an energy-saving program, waste recovery systems and pollution controls.

SCG plans to develop another 11 company sites in Map Ta Phut to meet the eco factory criteria in 2015.
