Kao made a presentation in “ECO-PRODUCTS 2008” took place at Tokyo Big Sight from December 11 to 13, 2008.

For the 10th time this year, “ECO-PRODUCTS 2008” based on the theme of “Now we can get eco-life reducing CO2 gas by 50%” is one of the largest environmental exhibition in Japan. Participants totaled more than 750 companies and organizations announced our future lifestyle and vision of decreasing CO2 society.

Kao introduced topics and products based on the following themes to encourage future awareness of our basic policy and goals concerning the environment such as implementation and integration of the 3R´s (reduce, reuse and recycle).

At Kao´s chemical booth, “Fixing at low temperature toner for copiers”, “Low temperature detergent for steel”, “Deinking agent for recycled paper” and “Modified polylactide resin” were introduced by video show and final products.

Visitors to the Kao´s booth provided both stimulating and encouraging comments, such as “I want to use more refill and replacement products as part of the eco-activities I can do at home,” “I would like to see the development of more environment-friendly products” and “As an individual, have no direct connection to kao chemical products, but I now see that Kao is contributing to environmental protection in many areas.”

With over 174,000 visitors during the three-day exhibition, a number higher than previous time, the heightened public awareness of the environment was unmistakable. For their outside school lesson, many elementary and junior high school students and many families were found in this time.

Kao will continue to contribute to the protection of the earth´s environment by maintaining our protective development of environment-friendly products, as well as encouraging the consumer to purchase our products by promoting our total approach to the environment.
