I am. The blasting method (*2), which removes rust and paint films from steel structures, generates industrial waste and CO2 in the process of disposing of large amounts of industrial waste, such as abrasives, in landfills. “CoolLaser”, which removes rust and paint films, does not use abrasives, so it does not emit industrial waste or CO2.
In addition, in the company’s “SOSEI business,” a repair and maintenance service for factory roofs using resin coating, we offer a service that sprays a lightweight, special three-layer resin onto factory slate roofs in order to support companies’ decarbonized management. In addition to reinforcing aging factories, it is also possible to improve insulation, waterproofing, and wind resistance, which is expected to improve air conditioning efficiency.
Furthermore, Fujita Co., Ltd. and Daiwa House Renovation Co., Ltd., members of the Daiwa House Group, have already adopted Toyoko’s technology to renovate their factories and warehouses. Going forward, the Daiwa House Group will continue to aim to provide even more added value by leveraging its extensive construction experience, technology and know-how, and adopting technologies that can contribute to reducing environmental impact.
