We tackle the effective utilization of water resources by utilizing our membrane products and recycling drainage water. As much water is necessary in the production process, we do not manufacture our products in areas that suffer from physical and economic water scarcity (where usage rates of water resources exceed 75%). In discharging water used in the production process, we adequately process and then drain it before it is released into the environment.Effective Utilization of Fossil FuelsAmount of energy from fossil fuels used in fiscal 2012: 5,752,818 GJ (consolidated)For manufacturers like us, the exhaustion of fossil fuels used as raw materials or energy is a serious problem. With the aim of sustainable development, we put effort into the effective utilization of materials and energy by means of saving energy and reducing waste. In addition, we promote the introduction of raw materials from non-fossil fuels and renewable energy.Management of WasteUnit generation of waste in fiscal 2012: 154kg/million yen (consolidated)Waste within the Nitto Denko Group is mainly log roll edges of tape and offcuts of lm generated from the cutting process. We adequately deal with waste within the Group in conformity with the Nitto Denko Group’s “Regulations for Waste Management”. Furthermore, we recycle as much waste generated as possible. Management of Organic SolventsAmount of solvent emissions in fiscal 2012: 1,330 metric tons (consolidated)In order to minimize air pollution generated from organic solvents, we install incineration equipment used for solvent gases or solvent recovery units, on every production line as needed. Furthermore, we are aggressively engaged in reducing the quantity of organic solvents used. The amount of solvent emissions has been declining year after year.Water Consumption (including water recycled at domestic bases)Total and Unit Energy Purchased (from fossil fuels) (consolidated)Total and Unit Generation of Industrial Waste (consolidated)Total and Unit Solvent Emissions (consolidated)
