Substances Subject to the PRTR Act

In accordance with the Act on Confirmation, etc. of Release Amounts of Specific Chemical Substances in the Environment and Promotion of Improvements to the Management Thereof (PRTR Act), we submit a report to the Japanese government each year declaring the amounts of designated substances produced or used by Mitsui Chemicals that were released into the environment or transferred elsewhere.
In fiscal 2015, the amount of emissions decreased approximately 110 tons compared with the level recorded in fiscal 2014.This was mainly due to the decrease in operating rates at each Works.
As calls for the management of chemical substance emissions to be improved and strengthened increase going forward, we will continue to manage emissions and to further strengthen our endeavors.
