Product Life Cycle and Environmental Impact Mass Balance

Business Activities to Form a Low Carbon, Recycling-Oriented Society

We will work to reduce environmental impacts at every stage in the product life cycle, from design and development through to recovery and recycling.

  • * Mass balance is a quantitative balance that represents the balance of resources consumed and waste emitted (including gas, smoke dust, etc.) during the entire life cycle of a given material, from generation through use, emission, recovery, recycling and re-use after recycling to final disposal.
  • * Values for NOx, SOx and smoke dust represent total emission volumes from facilities subject to regulations
  • * Scope of calculation covers operations in Yamagata, Fukushima, Tatebayashi, Iwatsuki and Sanyo
  • * REACH: Registration, Evaluation Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals
