Environmentally Optimized Plants
The high-mix low-volume production system that is Manac’s strength is supported from an environmental aspect through efforts put into neutralizing facilities. Acidic gases, volatile organic compounds, and wastewater are treated appropriately by scrubber facilities, activated carbon adsorption facilities, and a comprehensive wastewater treatment system (biological treatment). Optimization for the environment is being promoted by performing continuous environment monitoring together with PRTR reporting.
Engagement in Global Warming Prevention and Zero Emission Measure
Manac not only performs energy saving activities and greening activities but has also switched to natural gas boilers to reduce CO2 emissions from a facility aspect. We are also actively engaged in the promotion of 3R (Reduce/Reuse/Recycle) activities with an aim at thorough reduction of wastes. Manac shall fulfill its social responsibilities by shifting from a “problem responding model” to a “preventative model”, setting specific numerical targets for reduction, and making public its activities.
Iodo-Finechem Corp., which was established in 2004 to perform development, manufacture, and sales of iodine-related products, promotes the recycling of iodine, which is a limited natural resource. A competitive, comprehensive iodine compound business is deployed by constructing not only an efficient production system for iodine compounds but also a system for recovering and recycling iodine from iodine wastes.
