The East Asian market - the Yellow Sea Rim economic region
The Southeast Asian market
Issues we address 1: Recycling the waste of manufacturers in Asia
China and Taiwan are important markets for solar cell manufacturing. AMITA founded a subsidiary in Taiwan in 2011. AMITA provides solution services such as the proper disposal of industrial waste and stable supply of recycled materials by creating recycled particles and abrasive grain. We produce these recycled materials from a waste slurry which is derived from the manufacturing process in solar cell factories.
We are expanding our recycling business in Southeast Asia, by applying 100% recycling technologies and know-how that we have developed in Japan.
We also provide alternative fuels and materials to material industries in other countries. In cases where it is difficult to find customers for recycled materials in a country, we widen our search across Asia, utilizing our recycling business network.
We offer consulting services to enforce segregation of industrial waste, waste management and compliance with environmental laws. These services have achieved satisfactory results in Japan and they will minimize environmental risks for clients in other Asian countries.
Issues we address 2: Conservation of marine resources in Asia
Japan is one of the main countries with regard to the import and consumption of seafood. Seafood consumption in China has increased dramatically in recent years, and the JoongAng Daily newspaper reports that fish consumption in Korea has doubled in the last thirty years. According to the WWF, Asian countries produce 87 percent of farmed seafood worldwide.
The AMITA Institute of Environmental Certification Co., Ltd. (AIEC) has addressed the depletion of marine resources by introducing eco-labels for the Japanese market. We earned accreditation as the first certifying body of MSC and ASC, which are globally recognized fishery certificates and aquaculture certificates respectively. We conduct Chain of Custody Certification (COC) assessments for these two eco-labels.
To processors and distributors of seafood:
We at Amita group offer quality solution services related to marine eco-labels in Asia for the sustainability of the marine industry. In 2013, we are focusing on the dissemination of MSC/ASC certification in Korea. Please feel free to inquire if interested.
To potential partners:
We are seeking partners for the promotion of MSC/ASC labels on the Asian market. Please feel free to inquire if interested.
Issues that will be addressed in the near future
Energy production for Asian countries:
Small biomass facilities
In rural areas and islands, infrastructure development is relatively expensive. We offer systems to produce self-sufficient, waste-derived energy. We have conducted experimental proof of this system in the Tohoku region of Japan.
We offer the skills that Japan has developed for governments and companies who need proper regulations and facilities to prevent pollution. The minimization of environmental risk is a source of competitive advantage for companies and provides governments with an incentive for foreign investment.
