Building maintenance Chemicals
Many environmental measures are currently enforced. In fact, environmental issues have become an important aspect in building maintenance, as well. Upon undertaking environmental measures, there is a need to fully understand the technological trends of floor polishers and cleaning agents, and an accurate understanding of environmental problems. Yushiro has lead the industry in acquiring ISO14001 certification from the very early stage, since the company strives to make environment-friendly products through aggressive corporate activities focused on reducing environmental load.
Reducing Levels of Pollutants Released in the Environment
Promoting Dry Maintenance
We developed a new dry maintenance system, suggested for the users to implement, since it drastically reduces discharge of dirty cleaning water, VOC and waste container, by reducing the number of times necessary for cleaning.
Higher-Performance and Higher-Concentration Chemicals
High-endurance polishers make it possible to reduce the cleaning, maintenance and coating frequency. Cleaning agents with better cleaning performance has reduced the level of cleaner necessary to clean. Further, since polishers and cleaning agents prepared in higher concentrations, this has reduced the level of transport energy, as well as the number of waste containers discharged.
R&D of Products with Less Environmental Load
Phosphate-Free Cleaning Agents
Phosphate-free cleaning agents have reduced loads of eutrophication-causing water pollutants in our river and marine environment.
Replacing Surface Active Agents in the Crude Materials with Environment-Friendly Alternatives
Our goal is to replace high environmental load substances with those that comply with the PRTR standards. Thus, we will not use substances that may be an endocrine disruptor. We have also reduced the level of pollutants released by using highly biodegradable surface active agents.
R&D of Neutral-Type High-Performance Cleaners
This allows dirty water to be discharged without neutralizing it and can also reduce the volume of cleaning agent that has to be used.
Using Containers Made of Lesser Resources
We have reduced the weight and number of containers used, by switching to mainly using 4-liter polyvinyl containers. The resin used to make these new containers make them 1/2 the weight of conventional containers, and they can also be folded small (1/3 the size of conventional containers) when disposed.
Plastic Pail Recycling System
We use recyclable 18-liter plastic pails. These lighter weight pails have reduced the level of transport energy necessary.
