Hydrocarbon absorption and VOC collection
Tosoh develops zeolites
that help prevent pollution through efficient
absorption of hydrocarbons in automobile exhaust and other substances.
Zeolites can also be used to collect volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
from factory exhaust.
Cutting edge material with broad applications and eco-benefits
Tosoh zirconia (yttria-stabilized zirconia
, or YTZ) brings ecological
benefits to a broad range of products, including solid oxide fuel and
oxygen NOx sensors in the automotive field.
superior mechanical properties, such as high strength and flexibility,
and represents a technological breakthrough in surpassing the strength
limitations of traditional fine ceramics. Tosoh zirconia is also used
for fabrication of leading-edge artificial teeth.
Environmental analysis technology
Tosoh's scientific instruments
are used to measure trace amount of
anions and cations in purified water, wastewater and rainwater. They are
useful for environmental analysis as well as for analysis operations in
a number of fields, including the food, pharmaceuticals, water
sanitation and electronics industries.
Advanced wastewater treatment facility
Technologies for treating wastewater in large cities and rural areas
alike and removing nitrogen and phosphorous from water resources play an
important role in creating the infrastructure for a society that
enriches people’s lives. Organo
’s wastewater-treatment technologies
transform wastewater into water that can be returned to ecosystems,
resuscitating babbling brooks and aquatic life.
Heavy metal treatment agents
Wastewater purification technology
Tosoh helps waste disposal facilities prevent elution into the
environment of the heavy metals contained in the fly ash and combustion
ash generated during incineration. Tosoh TS-300, a high performance
heavy-metal treatment agent, offers heavy-metal elution control
properties and sharply reduces the volume of carbon disulfide generated
during the treatment of fly ash, a problem associated with conventional
treatment agents. Tosoh TX-10 is an agent that renders heavy-metal ions
in wastewater insoluble, making it applicable to the purification of
