Thinking About the Environment

Environmental problems such as global warming, acid rain and pollution are issues that no one living in the modern age can avoid. When it comes to the water resources which are so deeply connected with our company, too, there are problems such as water shortage and water pollution.
Having made it our mission to "eliminate odors," "eliminate detergents," and "eliminate waste water," we have developed the "AN21 System" and the "Biocare System," cleaning systems which take the environment into consideration. By using water which originates in nature and has excellent cleaning and deodorizing power, we make effective use of limited water resources, suppress the generation of waste water and unpleasant odors, and reduce the burden on the environment. With "Initiatives which look ahead toward the environment of 100 years from now" as our slogan, we will continue to work steadily on environmental activities into the future.
