Pyongyang, July 11 (KCNA) -- The DPRK has directed big efforts to the protection of marine environment.
The Marine Environmental Protection Center under the Maritime Administration of the DPRK plays an important role in it.
In this regard, Pae Nam Un, manager of the center, told KCNA:
The center, under the care of the state, undertakes ship-based pollution removal and damage recovery operations in the territorial seawaters and rivers of the DPRK.
It encourages the introduction of homemade products into ship-oil pollution removal in the seas, rivers and lakes, thus making contribution to ensuring good environment.
Adsorptive belt for checking the spread of oil pollution, mineral oil adsorbent and mineral oil dispersant have been applied to all the ports in the country, making great contributions to preventing pollution.
The national system for quality inspection of ship oil and ship oil analyzers like densimeter, automatic flash-point tester and automatic sulfur analyzer are playing a big role in keeping off marine accidents caused by fire and preventing air pollution.
The ship oily sewage filter proves effective in removing sea pollution.
The center was founded in November Juche 100 (2011) with a view to ensure environment of rivers and seas.
In recent years, it successfully undertook oil removal and damage recovery operations immediately responding to several oil pollution accidents happened in the territorial waters of the DPRK. -0-
