CPC criticized over emissions data

Date of Release: 
Mar 17 2016

State-run oil refiner CPC Corp, Taiwan (CPC) failed to seek environmental approval for modifications made to its facility in Kaohsiung Siaogang District (小港) due to emissions issues, environmentalists said alleging that the company made up false emission numbers.

Following the closure of a major CPC oil refinery in Kaohsiung’s Houjin (後勁) area last year, the company proposed to expand a facility in Siaogang’s Dalinpu (大林埔) area to process reformates — substances that are converted from naphtha and used to make gasoline.
