Environmental Policy

Mission to the "environmental protection" as a leader in the industry.
To environmentally advanced company to pursue eco-technology that combines the "Economy + Ecology".

Environmental Technology

Waste containing hazardous substances are discharged from the plating step of forming a compound aqueous resin and metal. For this reason, advanced wastewater treatment facility is required for water conservation. Located in the plating company dedicated industrial park, has invested 400 million yen or more, Kakihara was able to complete the joint wastewater treatment facility to date. In addition, to abolish the use of Freon 113 and cyan in the plating process, switch to washing with high purity pure water by this, and to hexavalent chromium-free In addition, we are committed to environmental protection in the new development and technology introduction .

Material Recycle Technology

Environmental protection is an issue that the manufacturers must address seriously now. When was further accelerate it, is the Automobile Recycling Law, which came into effect in 2005. Kakihara is the first in the industry, as material recycling technology of resin plated products, we have developed a technology for separating the plating and resin products that become waste, reuse, respectively. It is in operation since 2004 and was dedicated equipment installation.

Wastewater Treatment Equipment

The plating wastewater is separated to Chromium Drainage, Alloy Plating Wastewater and Acid Alkaline Drainage, and primary treated in the factory. After that, they are sent to Fukuyama Metal Center and has been processed and treated. We treat the wastewater, it becomes lower level of Sewer law of public sewer Fukuyama. After that, treated water is discharged to the public sewer. The sludge generated in the treatment process is sent to "Foundation Hiroshima Prefectural Environmental Conservation Corporation" Minoshima disposal site as the managed industrial waste and disposed of in landfills. The water quality testing of heavy metal ion concentration in the waste water, is performed once self-inspection every day by using the analytical instrument of atomic absorption photometer, etc., we are the proper treatment to be able to clear the criteria. The self-analysis data of one month, with concentration measurement certificate of the items analyzed outsourced, reported to the "Fukuyama city sewer department Niihama Purification Center". We have also carried out from time to time inspection of the processed material .

ISO 14001


In Kakihara, committed to action to protect the environment for the certification international environmental management system "ISO 14001", has been certified and registered November 9, 2001.
