[Company strength]
Coal ash from coal-fired power plants is a kind of industrial waste. Our Kurinka product is a patented technology that produces road pavement with the world's highest water retention performance by using a 100%-coal ash aggregate. This multifunctional pavement features water permeability and retentivity, durability, and a good appearance. This pavement solves environmental issues such as sudden downpours and the heat island effect, and also contributes to maintaining and creating living and natural environments. Our technology suppresses landfilling of coal ash and assists in stable operations of thermal power plants. This technology has already been used for walking trails, median strips, and transmission tower and mobile base station sites. The total paved area has reached 100,000 square meters and a total of 6,000 tons of recycled coal ash.

[Representative's message]
Coal-fired power plants are base power supply facilities in Japan and throughout the world. This also means that coal ash is produced every year as industrial waste. The amount is about 9 million tons a year in Japan. It is everyone's duty to form a sustainable society. We hope this technology will contribute to the formation of a recycling-based society as well as to solutions for environmental and social issues. We look forward to your consultation.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Coal-fired power plants are found throughout Japan. We are actively promoting our Kurinka road pavement product for local production for local consumption. Our company now has 16 agencies in Kyushu and one agency each in Kanto and Okinawa for this promotion. We will continue to increase the number of agencies by actively using methods operated by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, local governments, and SME Support, JAPAN. We will promote urban development with agencies to create sustainable, environment-oriented future cities.
