3)Adopting green power

We participate in the "Green Power Certification System" presented by Japan Natural Energy Company Limited. Electricity, generated by natural energy such as wind force and biomass, has values including "value of electricity itself" as well as energy conservation (fossil fuel reduction) and CO2 emission reduction.
This is called "environmentally added-value".

The scheme of using a "certificate" of "environmentally added-value", separated from "electricity", is the "Green Power Certification System". Using this system, through addition of "environmentally added-value" to the electricity supplied by an electric power company, you can interpret electricity consumed as green power generated by natural energy.

This means 20% of total power consumption in our water treatment chemicals production plant is covered by green power.
