Seikagaku is keenly aware of the importance of protecting the global environment. We observe environment-related laws and regulations and voluntarily engage in environmentally friendly business activities. At our plants, in the treatment of water used in pharmaceutical production, we have introduced electro-deionization facilities that use no hydrochloric acid or caustic soda and, in wastewater treatment, we have adopted a system that uses ozone treatment and the activated sludge process. 

 

We have also established the group-wide Energy Conservation Promotion Committee and are engaging in group-level initiatives to save energy, such as information sharing and joint consideration of improvement measures among the Group’s business sites.
