Addressing global climate change

Solutions Features Contributions to SDGs
PERVIOTM,
lithium-ion secondary battery separator
A material capable of providing high-capacity lithium-ion secondary batteries, contributing to the expanded use of next- generation vehicles, such as electric vehicles. 7 AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY13 CLIMATE ACTION
SUMIKAEXCELTM,
polyethersulfone
An additive for carbon-fiber reinforced plastics used in aircraft, making aircraft lighter and hence fuel-efficient. 7 AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY13 CLIMATE ACTION
CO2 separation membrane
Used in hydrogen production and natural gas refining to remove CO2, it reduces significantly energy consumption for CO2 separation, compared with conventional methods. 7 AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY13 CLIMATE ACTION
UV curing for polarizer lamination
Achieves substantial energy saving in the manufacturing of a polarizing film for displays, compared with conventional methods. 7 AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION13 CLIMATE ACTION
SUMIMETTM,
feed additive methionine
Adding methionine to poultry feed gives improved balance of amino acids in feed, resulting in reduced nitrogen in poultry excrement, a cause for greenhouse gas emissions. 12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION13 CLIMATE ACTION
OlysetTMNet,
anti-malarial long-lasting insecticidal mosquito net
A mosquito net developed for controlling malaria- carrying mosquitoes, helping reduce malaria infection. 3 GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING13 CLIMATE ACTION
Vector-control pesticides
In addition to fulfilling an important role in repelling and exterminating insects that spread infectious diseases, these pesticides facilitate adaptation to the effects of climate change. 3 GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING13 CLIMATE ACTION

Reducing Environmental Burdens

Solutions Features Contributions to SDGs
Halogen-free
flame-retardant elastomer

This elastomer is used in railway and construction materials. It does not contain halogen but is as flame retardant as a halogen-based material. In addition, it helps limit emissions of hazardous gases while burning. 12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION
High-purity alumina
(for use in automotive O2 /NOx sensors)
This material is used as insulation for the high-performance sensors that are needed to keep automotive emissions of NOx and other gases under mandated levels. It helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION
Polymer OLED lighting
Manufactured using processes that are energy- and resource-efficient due to the coating and printing methods, these lights can produce color over a wide temperature range, from gentle to vivid. 7 AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY13 CLIMATE ACTION
Biorationals
(Microbial pesticides, plant growth regulators, microbial agricultural materials)
Use of active ingredients derived from naturally occurring substances, contributing to promoting sustainable agriculture and stably supplying safe and secure food. 2 ZERO HUNGER12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION13 CLIMATE ACTION

Seed treatment agents

Accurate treatment of seeds prior to sowing with seed treatment agents makes it possible to substantially reduce spraying dosage and frequency of crop protection products, contributing to reduced environmental burdens in food production. 2 ZERO HUNGER12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION
Binder for lithium-ion secondary batteries
(Nippon A&L Inc.)
Reduced consumption of organic solvents in the manufacture of electrodes for lithium-ion secondary batteries by the use of water as the dispersion medium. 7 AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION
Temperaturesensitive film
“CHO-CO”
(SanTerra Co., Ltd.)
A temperature-sensitive plastic film for greenhouse farming that stays transparent and allows sunlight to enter at low temperatures whereas it becomes turbid and causes sunlight to scatter at high temperatures. 2 ZERO HUNGER12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION13 CLIMATE ACTION

Effective use of resources

Solutions Features Contributions to SDGs
SUMIKATHENETMEP, EXCELLENTMGMH,
polyethylene used for refill pouches
A pouch bag for refilling detergents, etc. made of this polyethylene can be easily cut by hand at its spout, thus reducing wastes, compared with rigid bottles. 12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION13 CLIMATE ACTION
Substrate-less touch sensor
(Dongwoo Fine-Chem Co., Ltd.)
This product can make the full function of the touch sensor without having substrates such as glass and film which were indispensable elements in conventional touch sensors. For this reason, this product contributes to resource saving. 12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION
