Toyota Kagaku Co., Ltd.

We contribute to reducing environmental loads by recycling waste solvents.

We reduce environmental loads by collecting used organic solvent discharged mainly by automobile manufacturers including Toyota Motor. We perform primary distillation to remove coating refuse and impurities from the waste solvent, and effectively use all the waste solvent that had previously been discarded. We established a system for recycling waste solvent by developing our original method including subdivision of waste solvent classification and the introduction of a continuous film flotation distillation method. We have advantages in applying our method to supply organic solvent that is combined according to detailed customer needs to supplement various solvents as a base for regenerating solvent.

[Company strength]
Solid material (paint and resin material) remaining from waste solvent after distillation used to be disposed of by landfilling. We changed the process to conduct viscosity control during distillation and to extract it in a liquid state in order to recycle unnecessary materials as well. Unnecessary materials taken out in a liquid state can be used as a substitute for fuel, so it has become possible to effectively utilize all the received waste fluid. Our advantage is that we continue to reduce environmental loads by making effective use of waste solvent, which had been disposed of in the past.
 


[Business description]
Our company handles used organic solvent material recycling. We collect used organic solvent discharged mainly by automobile companies and apply primary distillation to remove coating refuse and impurities from the waste solvent. We remove unnecessary water in the solvent in a subsequent second distillation, and create a base for regenerated solvent. We add new solvent in order to supplement constituents lost during the distillation. This is how we create an organic solvent that has quality equivalent to a new product.

[Strength of products/technologies]
Waste solvent discharged from paint factories contains a great deal of unnecessary material, so it is not suitable for material recycling. This is because paint and resin get stuck in the distillation machine. We have established a technology for recycling waste solvent by developing our original method including subdivision of waste solvent classification and the introduction of a continuous film flotation distillation method. We have the advantage of being able to supply organic solvent that is combined according to detailed customer needs. This is done by using our method to supplement various solvents as a base for regenerating solvent.

[Representative's message]
We contribute to society by collecting used organic solvent discharged mainly by automobile manufacturers including Toyota Motor, performing primary distillation, and removing coating refuse and impurities from the waste solvent. We hope to satisfy customer needs by aggressively working on developing washing agents for different industrial areas such as electronic parts, as well as automobile coating applications. We plan to expand our overseas business bases by FY2020. We are planning horizontal expansion to North China based on our track record in South China. We are also planning to expand to new countries including Southeast Asia.



[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We increased the number of staff in our sales section from seven to eight in FY2015 to arrange further sales expansion. We create close connections between the sales department and the engineering department when we receive an order from a customer. This is done in order to determine the optimal organic solvent from among our products to provide for the customer.



[Market share/Ranking]
We have a 70% or higher share of the market for organic solvent for paint dilution.

[Awards and media coverage]
[Awards]
Commendation by the Director General of the Industrial Location and Environmental Protection Bureau, Ministry of International Trade and Industry, as an enterprise contributing to recycling (1987).

[Media]
Nagoya Broadcasting Network, “Mei-Tele: Success” (December 4, 2010).



[Authorization/Certification]
Acquired ISO 14001 certification. 

[Joint research and development]
We developed a detergent for water-based paint in cooperation with Toyota Motor. Our product is water-soluble, unlike a conventional agent-type detergent, so the amount of organic compound in the cleaning solution can be significantly reduced. This product has been adopted since 2002, but we continue to improve it even now in order to enhance its detergency and to preserve the global environment.

[Main Clients / Business History (domestic)]
Toyota Motor, Toyota group companies, Honda Motor, Suzuki Motor, other automobile manufacturers, and many paint manufacturers.

[Main Clients / Business History (overseas)]
