Integrated Report 2020

Foundation46LINTEC Integrated Report 2020Environment Advancing Reductions in the Use of Organic SolventsTo reduce the use of organic solvents, which have a high environmental burden, we are advancing the use of solvent-free methods that do not use organic solvents for coating of adhesives and release agents. In the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020, the solvent-free percentage was 78% for adhesives used in adhesive products for labels and 55% for release agents used in release papers. Moving forward, we will work Fiscal Year 2020 Emission and Transfer of TolueneLINTEC plantsManufacturing pro-cesses for release papers and adhesive productsToluene FlowNote: Elimination rate = eliminated amount / (handled amount – transferred amount) ×100Exhaust-gas treatment facilitiesToluene handled: 7,652 tonsEmission into the atmosphere:464 tonsQuantity transferred (Treated as waste):363 tonsQuantity eliminated:6,825 tons(Elimination rate: 93.8%) Achieving Zero EmissionsIn the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020, waste generated was 28,100 tons, and waste emitted was 11,800 tons. Of the waste emitted, 7,100 tons was recycled externally, and the other 4,600 tons was properly disposed of by waste disposal companies. In addition, the final landfill disposal was 100 tons, or 0.3% of waste generated. With a final landfill disposal rate of less than 1.0%, we achieved zero emissions.3530252015105202028.1201620172018201903. Waste paper Waste plastic Waste oil Sludge OtherWaste GeneratedThousand tons(Fiscal years ended March 31)Solvent-free percentage (fiscal year ended March 31, 2020)Adhesive materials for adhesive prod-ucts for labels78%Release agents used in release papers55%to expand our lineup of solvent-free products and to increase sales of these products.

In the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020, on a non-consolidated basis the total handling volume of substances under the PRTR system was 7,817 tons, of which 7,652 tons were toluene, an organic solvent. Toluene emit-ted into the atmosphere amounted to 464 tons, a decrease of 25 tons over that of the previous fiscal year, while the quantity trans-ferred (treated as waste) was 166 tons less than in the previous fiscal year, at 363 tons.*1 REACH: EU regulation for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals*2 RoHS: EU directive on the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment
