Trade, Industry and Energy Minister Sung Yun-mo (center) made an on-site visit to the plant of Soulbrain, a Korean manufacturer of hydrogen fluoride, located in Gongju, South Chungcheong Province on January 2, in order to encourage the firm’s achievement in contributing to the domestic supply of high purity hydrofluoric acid to local chips and display makers.

The Ministry said since Soulbrain expanded the production volume through establishment and enlargement of related facilities, domestic supply stability for hydrofluoric acid has been secured.

Minister Sung said this is considered the first achievement of domestic self-reliance accomplished through the cooperation between business and government in response to Japan’s export regulation of three major materials.

The government will continue to work closely with domestic players to decrease Korea’s dependence on Japan for supplies of materials, parts and equipment.
