We strive to reduce energy consumption. Our Yamanashi Plant is equipped with LNG(Liquefied Natural Gas) Boiler, RTO (Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer), as well as Photovoltaic System.
LNG(Liquefied Natural Gas) Boiler
Compared with petroleum, LNG(Liquefied Natural Gas) generates less CO2 and NOx(nitrogen oxide), and generates no SOx(sulphur oxide) and soot dust. We are making maximum efforts to reduce harmful emissions by changing the heat source to LNG, and to improve energy efficiency by installing up-to-date equipments.
RTO (Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer)
A device called RTO treats the VOC emissions (volatile organic compound emissions) that are discharged in the drying process of Mipox Film. Once treated in RTO’s burning process, the gas becomes free of harmful substances. Our facilities utilize the waste heat from the RTO burning process as the source to heat a boiler. With RTO, Mipox Plants meet VOC Emission regulations under the Air Pollution Control Act.
Mipox Plants are equipped with photovoltaic panels, totaling 810 pieces on the rooftop and panel racks. The maximum output capacity is 120KW. The electricity generated from these panels is used to power our facility, and it contributes to the reduction of carbon emissions by approximately 52 tons annually.
