All products of Sangjin ARP are patented and stand apart from other existing products.
In the past, producers were responsible for producing products with easy-to-recycle material structures up to the point in time when the products are sold.
Consumers were then responsible for the waste generated after use. However, under the EPR system, the producers are responsible for recycling the waste generated after use.
Under this system, manufacturers or importers pay for waste-processing costs for products, materials, and containers that contain toxic substances,
are difficult to recycle, or may cause issues in waste management. This is done to suppress waste and prevent wasted resources.
[Basis: Act on the Promotion of Saving and Recycling of Resources, Article 12 (Waste Charges)
