Our stainless steel product is excellent in durability and recyclable "Earth-Friendly Metal" suitable for recycling society. In the process of manufacturing stainless steel, it makes use of the energy such as fuels and electricity, emits the exhaust gas and by-product, therefore stainless steel idustry is greatly related to preservation of the environment. For these environmental provisions, we make great efforts reducing the impact on the environment, saving energy and resources, reducing by-products, and recycling of resources, so that we actively promote these provisions and can contribute to the establishment of society harmonized with the environment

Director senior executive officer, Director of Kinuura Works
Kinuura Works has acquired ISO 14001 certification to aggresively promote reduction of environmental burden, energy saving, reducing and recycling by-products, and global environmental conservation.
Dust, slags and scales generated in the manufacturing processes are disposed of if they are not processed. However, we use the briquet system to collect and granulate the useful metals included in dust, slags and scales and recycle those metals. Slages are picked up, pulverized, and recycled as a roadbed material and even a concrete aggregate product to promote effective use of energy resources. In addition, high-efficiency light fixtures are used in the offices to conserve energy.
We are striving to prevent air and water pollution by making full use of our diversified environment-conscious systems. Our dust collecting system prevents steel dust from being released into the air. Toxic gases including Nox and nitrate nitrogen are decomposed into nontoxic nitrogen gas in our flue gas treatment system. Industrial waste water and miscellaneous drainage are purified and some of them are recycled.
Stainless steel is excellent in durability and recyclable "Earth-Friendly Metal" ready for recycling society.
