Tsurumi R&D Center
①Biocatalyst method for producing acrylamide
Acrylamide, which is used as a raw material such as in water treatment flocculants and paper strengthening agents, used to be manufactured from acrylonitrile in a chemical synthesis process employing copper catalysts. We are the first company in the world to build a biocatalyst method production plant (at the Tsurumi Plant) using microorganisms to perform industrial production. We continue to develop higher performance biocatalysts.
②Water treatment technology
We develop comprehensive solution technologies for water treatment.
We promote the development of technologies for solving global water shortages such as reducing water treatment cost and improving water quality, focusing mainly on biological wastewater treatment.
