Functional Chemicals & Energy

In functional chemicals, we are focusing on market niches in which we are strong and on development and value-proposition businesses. We are also building supply chains with Japanese and overseas suppliers and customers. We are taking an active role in helping society deal with increas­ingly low birth rates and an aging population by supplying pharmaceuticals and functional food materials.
In the energy business, we are engaging in new business opportunities in a changed environment caused by electric­ity and gas deregulation. We are developing value-added businesses by putting our customer-oriented know-how and services to use and leveraging our tank facilities and reinforcing our existing distribution sales business. We have also developed new businesses including biomass fuel, electric power and carbon credit trading.
