HiEV Charger, an LG Affiliated Company, Has Unveiled Its
New Portfolio of Convenient and Reliable Electric Vehicle Chargers
SEOUL, May 25, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) is expanding its electric vehicle (EV) charger solutions business, a move expected to further solidify the company’s position in the fast-growing EV charger segment. LG held a ceremony yesterday to celebrate the commencement of EV charger products manufactured by HiEV Charger (formerly known as AppleMango). HiEV Charger, an EV charging solution company, was acquired by LG, GS Energy and GS Neotek in 2022.
HiEV Charger unveiled its product portfolio during the ceremony, which features four different chargers: two 7kW models (wall-mounted and stand-type) and two fast-charging models (100kW and 200kW). All of the new products offer convenient installation and are suitable for use in multiple environments, such as homes, office buildings and a diverse range of other commercial facilities.
The newly introduced EV chargers boast an array of safety-enhancing features. In addition to being water- and dust-resistant, the chargers are equipped with functions designed to provide electrical and thermal protection throughout the charging process. The new chargers also have a slim depth that supports the efficient use of space, while the inclusion of two connectors means two EVs can be charged simultaneously. Simple management is provided through features like connector lock detection and remote updates.
By combining its know-how and technical prowess from the B2C and B2B sectors, LG is able to deliver differentiated solutions and enhanced customer experiences. The company’s well-established capabilities in manufacturing, quality control, after-sales service and supply chain management create the foundation necessary to achieve sustained success in the EV charging solution business. Looking beyond the domestic market, LG is currently planning EV charging product launches and related collaborations in countries around the world.
The global EV charging market is expected to grow to USD 186 billion by 2030, according to Roland Berger, a global management consulting firm. The market expansion is being driven by several factors, including the ongoing implementation of regulations aimed at protecting the environment, and the continuous progress of vehicle electrification.
“The start of EV charger production marks a significant milestone for LG, propelling us on a journey to becoming a total EV charging solutions provider,” said Suh Heung-kyu, vice president and head of the Electric Vehicle Charging business division of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “We will focus on delivering convenient and fast EV charging solutions for EV owners and differentiated EV charging solutions offering diverse form factors and new services for our valued partners.”

Reflecting Company’s Objective to Realize a Better Life for All, Proprietary Glass
Materials Offer Hygiene Benefits and Can Help Restore Marine Ecosystems
SEOUL, May 23, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) is bolstering its advanced materials business by utilizing an in-house developed antimicrobial glass powder and marine glass.1 LG’s antimicrobial glass powder offers excellent hygiene benefits and possesses glass’s characteristic chemical and thermal stability, durability and resistance to discoloration. Demonstrating the company’s commitment to good ESG management, LG’s marine glass can play an important role in helping to restore marine ecosystems. Both products are expected to secure growth opportunities for LG’s new advanced materials business.2
LG has been using its antimicrobial glass powder in several different home appliance lineups, including refrigerators, washing machines and air conditioners, since 2022. Helping to make product usage more hygienic, the company’s antimicrobial glass powder is employed in the manufacturing of plastic parts – such as fridge and dishwasher handles – that come into frequent contact with human skin.
The antimicrobial glass powder leverages LG’s expertise in glass composition design technology and in-depth understanding of the home appliance usage environment. LG’s glass powder offers anti-fungal and antibacterial properties when combined with various materials, such as plastics, fibers, paints and laminates, and is predicted to accelerate the expansion of the company’s advanced materials business.
Additionally, LG’s marine glass is based on the company’s own precise release technology for glass material. When dissolved in water, the marine glass transforms into inorganic ions, which contribute to the restoration of the marine ecosystem by fostering the growth of microalgae and algae in the ocean.
Furthermore, LG’s marine glass is an excellent alternative to the red clay used to help mitigate the ecological damage done by red tides, where harmful algal blooms cause the surface of the ocean to turn red. And because the glass material dissolves in water, it prevents secondary contamination of the marine environment.
With its antimicrobial glass powder serving as the starting point, LG’s advanced materials business is embracing a novel concept aligned more closely with the company’s Better Life for All ESG vision. The business plans to expand its operations to include marine ecosystem restoration, with a view to safeguarding the Earth’s oceans and waterways and contributing to a sustainable future.
LG first started researching glass powder in 1996, and now boasts a total of 219 patents relating to glass powder and its application. The company’s antimicrobial glass powder is made at LG Smart Park in Changwon, South Korea, which produces 4,500 tons of the material annually.
The antimicrobial glass powder was initially applied to LG ovens launched in North America in 2013. Coating the ovens’ interior surfaces, the glass powder is the key technology enabling the EasyClean function, which brings consumers additional value by making LG’s cooking appliances fast and easy to keep clean.
“LG is committed to expanding the scope of application for its glass powder beyond that of other glass materials,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “We believe our advanced materials business can help lead the way to a sustainable future, becoming a new growth engine and a central component of LG’s ESG management portfolio.”

Premier of “Among the Sky” Infused With LG OLED and Lifestyle TVs
During Frieze New York From May 17 to 21
SEOUL, May 18, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) announced today another breakthrough collaboration with
link hidden, please login to view (Ezequiel Pini b. 1985), an award-winning Argentinian designer and digital artist based in Barcelona. Over the last decade, Pini has increasingly explored how 3D tools and software can be used in his artistic practice to create imaginary, dreamlike worlds whose aesthetic is at once modernist, contemporary and, above all, elegant. The collaborative exhibition Among the Sky, which includes six specially commissioned artworks presented on large-scale format LG OLED and Lifestyle Screens, is being launched and exhibited during Frieze New York during a private preview held at The Shed May 15-16, and during the fair from May 17-21. LG OLED Arts’ collaboration with Six N. Five highlights a continuing and concerted effort in bringing together the world of digital art and advanced technology by presenting contemporary art experiences through LG OLED screens to inspire new and changing forms of the platform and broadening the ways viewers can and will experience visual culture. With premium self-lit picture quality and powerful image processing technologies, LG OLED TVs elevate the viewing and user experience in digital art display.
“We believe that LG OLED will break through the limitations of conventional media and open up the possibilities for digital art and artists,” said Kate Oh, vice president of the Brand Communication Division at the LG Home Entertainment Company. “In accordance with our motto, We inspire art, LG OLED will inspire many artists as they advance into new forms of art, transcending the borders of different fields. We could not be more excited in working with the most talented digital native artists – such as Six N. Five who understand this space.”
The series of six newly commissioned works, Among the Sky are inspired by landscape paintings, expressionism and fantasy realms of the surrealist masters but whose practice draws on digital tools of digital artwork to produce animate vignettes that blur the distinction between natural and outer worldly expressions – one physical and the other, digital. Through this unique collaboration with LG OLED and LG Art Lab, each work can be seen and experienced viscerally in the physical world while also being made available across purely large-scale, digital platforms. LG’s state-of-the-art OLED evo TVs accurately reproduce the textures and colors of the work and deliver exceptionally immersive images, offering higher brightness, clarity and detail. It is also an important aspect through such collaborations to pave the way and bridge the gap between Web 2.0 to Web 3.0 user experiences.
“The sky has no boundaries. Its immensity has always represented a sacred journey beyond perceived limits to me. The world as we know and experience has a finite horizon. It is broken when our vision is raised to connect with the sky,” shares Six N. Five. “For some, it proposes the connection to the beyond, to our divine and spiritual essence. We look up there when we ask for things, when we seek an explanation or simply when we decide to “end” the verticality of our bodies to allow us a physical and mental rest, surrounded by nature.”
The six series of works by Six N. Five will be available as NFTs (Non-Fungible Token) via LG Art Lab on May 25 at 12:00 AM EDT and also be exhibited during Frieze New York from May 17-21, 2023 at The Shed 8th Floor, Tisch Skylights located at 545 W 30th Street, New York, NY. The exhibition is co-curated by Ezequiel Pini and Derrick Li, and supported by Triple X.

Recognizing its duty to society, LG has been committed to ensuring a better life for all on a global scale. For more than 30 years, LG’s Indonesian branch has carried out countless social activities to promote health, education and the environment, as an extension of the company’s sincere efforts to assist the government in enhancing the quality of life for all Indonesians.
To realize social initiatives locally, LG Indonesia has run ‘LG LOVES Indonesia,’ a program made up of three main pillars: ‘LG Loves Green’ for protecting the environment; ‘LG Loves School’ for bettering education; and ‘LG Loves and Cares’ for supporting various social causes.
‘LG Loves School’ is a regular social program that has been running for several years, including providing electronic devices to vocational schools in Jakara and Warungasem last year. This year, Indonesia is continuing its ‘LG LOVES Indonesia’ program, with a focus on solving both environmental and social issues.
LG Loves Green
The beauty of nature must be safeguarded, and there are countless measures to keep environmental sustainability in check. As far as creating a more sustainable future is concerned, tree planting is among the most effective methods as it not only benefits the natural world, but also mitigates several environmental issues such as global warming and deforestation.
To conclude the ‘LG Loves Green’ initiative, which started with the handing over 4,000 seedlings to the Conservation of Natural Resources Jakarta to celebrate 32 years in Indonesia, LG Indonesia recently donated 13,000 plant seeds to the South Kalimantan Provincial Forestry Service in commemoration of World Earth Day – April 22 – further demonstrating its commitment to environmental conservation, this time in South Kalimantan.
To reach its goal of planting a total of 32,000 trees across the country, the company previously partnered with the South Sumatra Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BKSDA) to deliver 15,000 plant seeds to South Sumatra.
Through this initiative, LG Indonesia hopes to bring life to a more sustainable environment. In addition to helping the regional government establish a legacy that can be passed down for generations, supplying so many seeds suggests that the company’s corporate social responsibility commitment to the environment has already produced positive results.
LG Loves and Cares
Besides the environment, the company also prioritizes the importance of health as a key aspect of quality of life. It not only impacts our capacity to live a full and productive life, but also has a tremendous impact on our entire physical and emotional well-being.
Having long understood the significance of health awareness, LG Indonesia arranged yet another social activity to support health initiatives during Eid al-Fitr, a major Indonesian festival. The annual LG Lebaran Sehat (LG Healthy Eid) event seeks to improve the health of residents by making the benefits of good health clear for anyone to see.
For three days in April, three waste treatment facilities benefited from LG Lebaran Sehat’s two main programs: one which distributed food packages to locals and another that offered vital health checkups. Since the program focused on enhancing the quality of public health, every food package was reviewed by a leading nutritionist beforehand to ensure the ideal nutritional balance for improved well-being.
By partnering with Posyandu (Pos Pelayanan Terpadu, Integrated Health Service Posts), the company was able to provide general health checks for children living in the area, vitamins and nutritional supplements and health education sessions highlighting the endless benefits of good health.
With the ‘LG LOVES Indonesia’ campaign continuing throughout the year, stay tuned for more social activities designed to rejuvenate the local environment and enhance the health and education of all Indonesians.
