Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Change of fuel/Thermal efficiency improvement
[TAIYO CHEMICAL] Changed fuel from heavy fuel oil to town gas.
[R&D Center/KOREA KYONG NAM TAIYO YUDEN] Introduced a high-efficiency kerosene boiler.
[Haruna Plant] Changed from a kerosene boiler to a heat pump. The reduction amount of overall greenhouse gas emissions was 626t-CO2e per year.
Efficiency improvement of transformer/motor
[Nakanojo Plant] Upgraded to high-efficiency transformer.
[TAIYO YUDEN (GUANGDONG)/KOREA KYONG NAM TAIYO YUDEN] Upgraded the motor in the facility to a high-efficiency type. The reduction amount of overall greenhouse gas emissions was 606t-CO2e per year.
Efficiency improvement of freezer
[TAIYO YUDEN (GUANGDONG)] Introduced a high-efficiency inverter-control freezer.
[NIIGATA TAIYO YUDEN] Improved the freezer system. The reduction amount of overall greenhouse gas emissions was 924t-CO2e per year.
Energy-saving through introduction of LEDs
[Yawatabara Plant/Haruna Plant/Nakanojo Plant/NIIGATA TAIYO YUDEN] Upgraded the lighting to LEDs. The reduction amount of overall greenhouse gas emissions was 80t-CO2e per year.
Reducing Water Use
Water-saving through waste water recycling
[TAIYO CHEMICAL/Nakanojo Plant] By filtering the waste water from the cutting process using a filter, a volume of water could be reused. The amount of reduced water was 535t per year.
Energy consumption monitoring system
electricity per unit, compressed air, etc.
By visualizing energy consumption, we are operating a leaner business. By leveraging the monitoring system, we are conducting energy-saving activities in a more timely manner.
Energy-saving activities using our proprietary WSN
indoor environment (temperature, humidity)
By leveraging our proprietary wireless sensor network technologies, we are monitoring the temperature/humidity in the building and electricity consumption in real time. We are conducting energy-saving activities through fine-tuned management.
Real-time monitoring of environmental conservation facilities
environmental conservation facility operation data
We are automatically collecting operation data of environmental conservation facilities at domestic and overseas sites and conducting centralized monitoring. Based on the collected data, we provide operational advice to local sites.
