Kawasaki Zero-Emission Industrial Complex

Kawasaki Zero-Emission Industrial Complex was developed as a state-of-art model facility of the Kawasaki Eco-Town Plan(full operation commenced in 2002).

In addition to controlling waste matter generated by the business a activities of individual companies as much as possible, efforts at the complex are directed at maximizing resource-recovery from waste matter and the regeneration of energy in order to minimize the burdren on the environment.

Main initiatives implemented by Kawasaki Zero-Emission Industrial Complex

Panorama view of the Kawasaki Zero-Emission Industrial Complex
  • Acquisition of joint certification of ISO14001 for the entire industrial Complex
  • Setting of higher reduction targets than emission standards of the generated environmental burden
  • Joint reception by the neighboring businesses of the electricity from the surplus electricity
  • Effective use of sewerage water after advanced treatment as an alternative for water for industrial use
  • Utilization of sewerage sludge ash a raw material in cement in nearby factories

Main initiatives taken by individual businesses

Freezing, refrigerating and warehousing businesses Rigid chrome plating business Recycling business for difficult-to-recycle wastepaper
・Securing a high level of safety by dispersively placing direct-expansion small freezers with high heat efficiency at warehouses, making the piping lengths as short as possible and introducing sprinkling and abatement systems
・Extension warehouses accredited with “facility evaluation CASBEE” ratings by Kawasaki City were also built
・Established a cyclical closed system that releases not even one drop of waste liquid outside the plant. Used liquids are replaced and recycled approximately once every four years
・Succeeded in reducing the use of chromic acid to about one half of normal usage or less
・Succeeded in recycling wastepaper that is normally difficult to recycle
・Undertakes water recycling, hydroelectric generation, and thermal recycling of residual matter during recycling processes
