The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) had developed a high temperature air combustion technology that saved energy and raised efficiency in industry, the official news agency KCNA reported Wednesday.

According to the KCNA, scientists at the Heat Engineering Institute of the State Academy of Sciences of the DPRK have invented a high-speed switching device, honeycomb regenerator and other air-preheating equipment and devices after years of research.

The energy-saving technology made it possible to use anthracite instead of liquid fuel in industrial furnaces, make full use of heat by raising the combustion rate of fuel and reduce fuel consumption, the report said.

The report said the technology had already been used in the Kim Chaek Iron and Steel Complex, Hwanghae Iron and Steel Complex and Hoeryong Earthenware Factory.
