REACH Regulation*10 and the RoHS Directive*11. In scal 2018, Lintec took steps to comply with chemSHERPA*12 in order to manage chemical substances properly along the entire supply chain.Reducing VOCsLintec is reducing VOCs. In product design, Lintec is working on switching to a solvent-free release agent for its release paper and solvent-free adhesive for printing-related adhesive products to reduce the amount of organic solvents it uses. In scal 2018, the percentage of solvent-free release paper (production basis) was 54.2%. The percentage of solvent-free printing-related adhesive products (sales basis) was 73.3%. The percentage of solvent-free paper and products remained at the same level as in the past.In China, companies are under pressure to take measures as part of a plan to keep the sky blue by preventing air pollution. In addition to the use of UV ink, which has smaller environmental impacts, our company installed adsorption type activated carbon devices to reduce VOC emission gas. It is expected to reduce the emissions by about 15 to 20%.Installing Adsorption Type Activated Carbon Devices to Reduce VOC Emission GasVoiceAdsorption type activated carbon deviceemissions by about 15 to 20%.emissions by about 15 to 20%.Piao ShirongQuality Assurance & Environmental Safety DepartmentLintec Printing & Technology (Tianjin) CorporationThe Lintec Group complies with relevant laws and regulations in and outside Japan and strives to reduce its use of chemical substances that have an impact on the environment.Compliance with PRTR Act*9 In scal 2018, Lintec used 12 substances that are subject to PRTR reporting, such as toluene and xylene. The total quantity of PRTR chemicals was 8,179 tons. Toluene accounted for approximately 97%, the largest portion, of this amount, at 7,919 tons, up 167 tons from the previous year due to an increase in production volume. Emissions of toluene into the atmosphere were 489 tons, up 7 tons from the previous year, and the transferred amount was 529 tons, up 46 tons from the year before.Complying with EU Regulations Concerning Chemical Substance Management and Environmental PreservationLintec examines substances with environmental impact in the raw materials it purchases, properly grasps and manages its use of chemical substances to comply with related laws and regulations, and communicates information to customers.

By individually specifying the color used for indicating the classi cation using RGB*8 color codes, and thereby making it easier to distinguish what can be disposed of based on the illustrated explanation, we strive to promote recycling, dispose of environmentally hazardous substances properly, and increase the awareness of employees. While we currently give instructions for classi cation into 55 categories in total, we hope to increase the number of categories and step up measures for proper management of waste.VoiceYuji NakayasuSubsection Manager Planning Section Maintenance Section Maintenance DepartmentTatsuno PlantDriving Forward Initiatives for Proper Management of WasteTo manage waste and return items properly, instructions for classi cation are posted in a uni ed format at each collection point in the Tatsuno Plant.
