Kameyama plant is located near farmland and surrounded by lush greenery. We make sure that strict fire preventive measures and wastewater management are maintained at Kameyama plant in order to ensure our activities here, including manufacture and storage of oil products, are done in harmony with the natural surroundings.
In wastewater management, we have an external laboratory inspect the wastewater quality on a regular basis to make sure the water quality-based effluent limits agreed with Kameyama city are maintained.
Sewage is treated in a septic tank before being transferred to the on-site wastewater treatment facility, where wastewater from manufacturing process is also collected. Here, water, oil and solids are separated and treated, and the treated effluent is discharged into the environment.
An outside maintenance and management service provider carries out periodic maintenance of our wastewater treatment facility. We put highest priority to safety in the operation of the facility.
