UL, a global certification organization for waste recycling with the aim of achieving zero waste to landfills, grants a silver grade to companies that reach 90 to 94 percent in recycling and gold for those at 95 to 99 percent.
Samsung Display reused wastewater by filtering out impurities and reutilized waste glass as a raw material for making cement, the company said.
