Our technological capabilities have been well recognized by major global automakers in the lithium-ion battery market for electric vehicles. We are also emerging as a global player in the field of information and electronic materials such as LiBS and FCCL.
We make ceaseless efforts to enhance the competitiveness of existing businesses through technology innovation and create new businesses for future growth, so we can provide new areas of value for our customers.
We continue our efforts to increase competitiveness of existing businesses by optimizing the entire operating processes from the importing of crude oil to product manufacturing and sales. We also endeavor to create future growth engines based on our technological capabilities we have accumulated for the past 50 years. As a result, we are globally recognized in the new field of information and electronic materials which include EV batteries and battery separators.
Crude oil is refined to produce eco-friendly and high-performance fuels, gases, asphalt and naphtha which is a major source of chemical products.
By-products generated in the refining process are reformed and purified of impurities, which are then used to produce various chemical products and engine lubricants.
Crude oil and naphtha used to produce petroleum products are imported, and products of SK energy and SK incheon petrochem are exported.
