By taking advantage of Lintec’s technologies for adhesive applications and Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd.’s ne processing technology, the product de ects sunlight, ef ciently re ects it onto ceilings, and diffuses it to brighten up rooms. It reduces electric power used for lighting, which leads to a reduction in environmental impacts.Efforts in ManufacturingTo comply with the Energy Conservation Act, the Lintec Group in Japan*2 collects monthly data on energy consumption of individual sites under the direction of the Lintec Energy Savings Promotion Committee. In scal 2018, we promoted group-wide energy-saving initiatives, such as ef cient operation of production facilities and boilers, air-conditioning management, promotion of exhaust heat recovery, and expansion of the use of VOC*3 combustion heat.Efforts in DistributionLintec does not have distribution and transportation sections but is a “Designated Shipper” under the Revised Energy Conservation Act in Japan because it consigns the transport of more than 30 million ton-kilometers*4 annually. As a Designated Shipper, Lintec submits an annual report to the government in accordance with this Act. In scal 2018, the volume of transportation increased by 0.8% (775,000 ton-kilometers) from the previous year but CO2 emissions decreased by 0.16% (17 t-CO2). Energy use per unit of transportation improved by about 1.2%. We will continue to improve our distribution system and transportation loading ef ciency, with the goal of reducing environmental impacts.of paper production was 47.2 m3/t*5. Lintec was unable to achieve the target of a 1.0% reduction on a year-on-year basis.The target in scal 2019 is 1.0% reduction per unit of production from the previous year. To that end, the plants will make continued efforts to reduce water usage in each process and prevent water leaks.Efforts for Zero Emissions*6In scal 2018, the amount of waste generated, including manufacturing loss, at Lintec was 28,940 tons. The total waste output was 11,430 tons. Of this waste output, 7,110 tons were recycled by outside recycling companies and the remaining 4,320 tons were properly disposed of by waste disposal companies.The nal land ll disposal rate*7 for scal 2018 was 0.14%, achieving the target nal land ll disposal rate of 1.0% or less. Lintec’s target from scal 2018 to scal 2019 is a 0.1% reduction in the amount of waste generated, on a year-on-year basis.*1 For LCA, see page 10.*2 For the Lintec Group in Japan, see page 09.*3 For VOC, see page 11.*4 Ton-kilometers: A unit of cargo transport amounts, computed by multiplying the cargo tonnage by the transportation distance. Transporting 1 ton of cargo over a distance of one kilometer equals In order to help realize a recycling-oriented society, the Lintec Group is working to reduce waste. It is also striving to save water, reuse waste water, while complying with the ef uent control regulations and improving the quality of ef uent generated.Reducing Water Usage and Ef uentIn scal 2018, Lintec used 8,484,000 m3 of water. Of this amount, about 89% was used by the Kumagaya and Mishima plants, which are Lintec’s Fine & Paper Products Operations.
