Our BusinessBusiness outline
Proposal of global network and solutions
Activated carbon is an interesting material, which has very small molecular size pores. While widely used in air and water purification, activated carbon nowadays contributes energy storage field with its high adsorption characteristics.
Since our start of activated carbon business in 1965, we have expanded the production bases to Japan, the Philippines, and China (Ningxia) as well as the marketing network to Japan, Germany, USA, China, Korea, India, Singapore and Vietnam.
Our expertise in R&D, procurement, production engineering, QC, and sales & marketing makes it possible to provide the optimized solutions in the various fields from environmental purification to energy storage.
New carbon technology for customer satisfaction／R&D
To propose the optimized solutions to the customers, we are committed to the research of activated carbon especially focusing on the surface chemistry (pore sizes) of the carbon, which is one of our core technologies.
While continuing to research of those technologies, we keep challenging to provide innovative products with our unique technologies.
Network to secure the selected raw materials／Procurement
To secure the product quality as well as safe supply to the customers, we thoroughly select the raw materials of activated carbon from all over the world. All raw materials need to pass our strict standard, which makes us to continue to provide our high performance activated carbon. We procure various range of raw materials under highest quality standard.
Challenge with our own technologies／Manufacturing
Over years, Kuraray has established our own technologies in uniform and stable activation, high purification, metal & chemical treatment, pore size optimization in molecular level. Processing technologies including micron level crushing, molding, energy saving and environmentally friendly manufacturing are the basis for multifunctional fabrication and applications. Kuraray makes high purity nitrogen separator devices as well.
We continue to improve manufacturing process for high performance activated carbon.
Quality Management System for Customers／Quality Control
Tsurumi plant, one of the main manufacturing sites with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification, is committed to stable supply of activated carbon to our customers with strict standards of occupational health & safety and the environment.
Customer satisfaction is most important to us. We continue to answer to the customer’s needs in timely manner with our experienced production technology.
