KAKEN Co.,Ltd.

We can handle analysis, testing, and R&D associated with radioactive materials.

We are entrusted with analysis, testing, and R&D in the field of chemistry. We can handle any requirement associated with radioactive materials. We are receiving more orders for conducting analysis, investigation, and technical development associated with the nuclear power plant accident in Fukushima Prefecture, and our range has been increasing. We have a track record ranging from the central government and private research organizations to private-sector companies including Kobe Steel, Ltd., Mitsubishi Research Institute, Inc., and Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy, Ltd. We also have a track record of delivering our radioactive diagnosis agent production system to the National Nuclear Energy Agency of Indonesia (BATAN). We are working to expand our services including the production and distribution of the chemical testing equipment, and environment-associated measurement certification services.


Other presentation

[Company Strength]
Our company is located near the Japan Atomic Energy Agency’s facilities in Oarai-shi and Tokai-mura in Ibaraki Prefecture. We have a wealth of experience and excel in handling tasks associated with nuclear power. We possess equipment to safely handle radioactive materials and various kinds of measurement equipment, as well as qualified personnel with expertise in radiation who can provide accurate and reliable data. We have been making continuous efforts to announce our constant R&D achievements at academic conferences since our company’s establishment over 35 years ago. These efforts resulted in nurturing our capabilities to provide technically oriented services, and we have gained a high level of trust from our clients. 

[Business Outline]
We provide chemical analysis, entrusted testing, and entrusted R&D associated with chemistry. We produce and distribute chemical testing equipment, and provide environment-associated measurement certification services. Our customers include the central government, private research organizations, and private-sector companies. We are one of the few companies in Japan capable of handling radioactive materials. Recently we have been receiving more orders for conducting testing, radionuclide assays, investigations, and technical development associated with the nuclear power plant accident in Fukushima.

Testing and R&D associated with chemistry

[Product and Technology Strengths]
We conduct testing and R&D using radioisotopes and nuclear fuel materials in our specially built equipment at our company site as a radiation-controlled area to safely handle radioactive materials. We have been receiving an increasing number of orders since the core meltdown and building explosion accident four years ago at the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant. These include carrying out radioactive contamination investigations of contaminated water and soil from the plant site, radionuclide assays, decontamination technology development, and radiation source production and distribution. These are tasks that no other company but ours could handle. We also design and build specialized testing devices and equipment to be used in experiments and R&D, so we can provide integrated services to satisfy customer requests.

[Representative’s Message] 
We have been constantly working on R&D and product development of novel chemical technologies in advance of other institutes and companies for over 30 years. We have nurtured and accumulated chemical technologies and products that are globally unique and outstanding. We possess all the technologies, functional materials, and specialized equipment required for inspection and analysis in association with the coming decommissioning processes for nuclear power plant facilities. We also possess production technology for radioactive diagnostic agents, as well as chemical technology and materials associated with nuclear fusion reactions. Our products and technologies have sufficient capabilities for worldwide dissemination. We have ongoing joint research projects in collaboration with national institutes in Italy and other countries for chemical technology, materials, and system products associated with nuclear fusion reactions. We are planning to cultivate overseas markets by continuing our joint research relationships.
