Reducing Pollutants Released in the Environment
Promoting Dry Maintenance
We developed a new dry maintenance system, suggested for the users to implement, since it drastically reduces discharge of dirty cleaning water, VOC and waste container, by reducing the number of times necessary for cleaning,
Higher-Performance and Higher-Concentration Chemicals
High-endurance polishers make it possible to reduce the cleaning, maintenance and coating frequency. Cleaning agents with better cleaning performance has reduced the level of cleaner necessary to clean. Further, since polishers and cleaning agents prepared in higher concentrations, this has reduced the level of transport energy, as well as the number of waste containers discharged.
R&D of Products with Less Environmental Load
Chlorine-Free Metal Working Fluids & Straight Oils
Phosphate-Free Cleaning Agents
Phosphate-free cleaning agents have reduced loads of eutrophication-causing water pollutants in our river and marine environment.
Replacing Surface Active Agents in the Crude Materials with Environment-Friendly Alternatives
Our goal is to replace high environmental load substances with those that comply with the PRTR standards. Thus, we will not use substances that may be an endocrine disruptor. We have also reduced the level of pollutants released by using highly biodegradable surface active agents.
R&D of Neutral-Type High-Performance Cleaners
This allows dirty water to be discharged without neutralizing it and can also reduce the volume of cleaning agent that has to be used.
Environmentally Conscious Containers
We incorporate a tote recycling program, use recycled drums, and source raw materials in bulk.
