Promotion of Environmental Risk Management
SSMC is promoting management of environmental risk with the aim of continually enhancing preservation of the environment in various regions, with due consideration of environmental risks, which differ by each steelworks and factory, and with due consideration to compliance with Japan’s Air Pollution Control Act Law and other regulations. We also are engaged in reducing environmental risk throughout the Group.
In order to reduce emissions of sulfur oxides (SOx) and nitrogen oxides (NOx), NSSMC is taking measures such as use of low-sulfur fuel, and installing Sox- and NOx-reducing equipment, low NOx-generating burners, and exhaust gas treatment units.
In keeping with the Pollutant Release and Transfer Register Act, the Chemical Substance Control Law, and other related laws and regulations, we make efforts to properly control production, handling, emission to the environment, and discharge of chemical substances, and make improvements when we can.
