It is expected that the possibility of soil contamination will be high as industrial complex will be treated with many harmful chemicals during industrial activities. Therefore, the Korea Environment Corporation has been conducting a detailed survey of Korea’s industrial complex since 2004.
There are about 1,193 industrial complexes in Korea. A total of 60 industrial complexes, 6,201 business companies, were surveyed between 2004 and 2018. Among them, 347 companies exceeded the standard for soil contamination, with a rate of about 5.5 percent.
