Marine biodegradable bio-composite plastic material that will not become plastic waste in the ocean

i-Compology Corporation

Shinagawa-ku,Tokyo

Expected Effects and OutcomesBiofade falls specifically under SDG 14, “Life Below Water.” The enactment of a global agreement to address the marine plastic waste problem as an urgent global issue is planned for 2024. Its features are that there are no residual microplastics, and it is carbon-neutral because the raw materials are mainly derived from biomass. It has biodegradability in seawater and biodegrades in land, fresh water, and other environments.

ProductBiofade

Features of Products and ServicesThis is a plastic that contains a large amount of wood powder from thinned timber and other biomass powders and is compounded with seawater biodegradable polymers. Its biodegradation is a function of having no residual microplastics. According to the formulation, it can be adapted to various molding processes such as injection molding and blow molding, and it has the feature that its biodegradation rate in seawater can also be adjusted.

Safeguard against winter hazards: A next-generation snow-melting system that prevents snow from accumulating

ELCOM Co., Ltd.

Sapporo-shi, Hokkaido

Expected Effects and OutcomesBecause far-infrared rays act directly on snow, unlike road heating, there is no energy consumption for heating the ground, which makes it more efficient. It also has a smaller environmental load than combustion-heating snow melting, and can decarbonize snow melting by using renewable electricity. Furthermore, this next-generation snow-melting system is more environmentally friendly than snow-melting agents or groundwater spraying, where there are concerns about impacts on the environment.

ProductSnowClear Overhead Melter

Features of Products and ServicesSnowClear Overhead Melter (trademark in Japan is TOKERUMO) is a snow-melting system that employs a far-infrared ray method. With a system that melts snow with far-infrared rays irradiated from above like sunlight, it is automatically operated 24 hours a day by using snowfall sensors, turning on at the same time as snowfall to prevent snow from accumulating. Each unit can melt snow over an area of approximately 10 square meters, which makes it ideal for spot-melting snow at sites such as entrances and exits around buildings, outdoor stairs, and barrier-free passageways.
