Creating Shared Value
Kurita has defined products, technologies, or business models that contribute significantly to reducing CO2 emissions, water and energy use, and waste for society and the customer. The Kurita Group strives to create shared value (CSV) with society by providing optimal solutions that maximize the use of management resources to address various issues facing society. To this end, we maintain high sensitivity to social issues while working to improve our competence base as a company and provide Total Solutions.
Kurita is driven to research and develop new technologies that meet customers’ needs, aiming for the further evolution of water treatment products. Our technologies and expertise can lower your operating costs, increase your plant productivity, and optimize the safety of your employees and your facilities.
Kurita provides unique value demanded by customers and aims to create shared value with the society.
Water shortages have become a serious problem all over the world. Kurita has created technologies for utilizing water with maximum efficiency. We will realize effective utilization of water resources by widely applying our technologies for saving, purifying, and reusing water to secure the water necessary for the development of lives and industries.
Kurita has developed a new wastewater reuse system, incorporating cutting-edge technologies and expertise in both chemicals and facilities. We developed this system to realize a good balance between water resource supply and demand by reusing water for regions and customers facing shortages.
Energy demand has been expanding with the ongoing increase in the global population, accompanied by an increase in CO2 emissions. Efficient and optimized energy use has gained prominent attention.
A factory consumes a vast amount for making steam, hot water, and cold water in addition to using water chemicals to improve the heat efficiency of factory equipment, such as boilers, cooling tower, and manufacturing equipment. Since its foundation, Kurita has been providing products and technologies that contribute to improving the energy efficiency of boilers and various other facilities.
Waste generated daily has an impact on the global environment, including pollution and the destruction of ecosystems. Solving these issues will require initiatives for reducing waste and facilitating the recycling of resources. Kurita aims to create a system for reducing waste and reusing it into resources in a community-wide manner.
Kurita has been talking steps to reduce waste generated in a factory's wastewater treatment process, thus reusing it in other technologies, such as biological treatment. We will continue to provide solutions for realizing zero waste together with our customers and local communities.
In a smart factory, the internet of things (IoT) is used for improving productivity and quality, making effective use of resources and energy, and other purposes. Kurita aims to use the data not only for water treatment facilities but also for efficiency improvement and stable operation of the entire factory.
Kurita will seek to optimize water treatment in the entire factory by making full use of the internet of things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) by converting our many years of experience and expertise in water treatment, water quality, facility maintenance history, and status of energy use into digital data.
Creating Shared Value Solutions
Below you will find a list of Kurita Global's Shared Value products, as well as Kurita America's Shared Value Products, PhosZero and EnergyOUT .
Kurita’s innovative Cetamine technology is designed for complete protection of steam generators, hot water boilers, and closed systems as well as corrosion protection in open cooling systems. Composed of film-forming amines (FFA), Cetamine creates a hydrophobic protective film. This film, adsorbed on all metal surfaces in the system, creates a continuous barrier between water and metal, effectively inhibiting corrosion without affecting the heat transfer.Learn More
Kurita's DReeM Polymer is a unique chemistry developed to maximize heat transfer surface cleanliness and efficiency, and minimize fuel costs in low to medium pressure boilers. This award winning technology is unparalleled as an on-line cleaner of silica and iron silicate boiler deposits, and has won multiple energy conservation awards, named the most effective silica dispersant available for high temperature applications.Learn More
Kurita's patented Kuriverter IK-110 is a unique chemistry developed to maximize operational efficiency and normalized flow through reverse osmosis membrane systems. This proprietary biological control agent specifically targets biofilm, encouraging it to release from surfaces into the bulk water, where it can be flushed from the system. Kuriverter IK-110 applications have been proven to decrease pressure drop across filters, increase normalized flow back to near new condition on the RO, stabilize salt rejection, and reduce operation and energy costs.Learn More
Kurita’s S.sensing CS system is an automatic, chemical injection monitoring system to control coagulant for optimum results. The S.sensing CS system ensures correct dosage of treatment, reduced labor costs and sludge disposal, consistent effluent quality, reduced surcharges and more!Learn More
Kurita’s unique wastewater reclamation Cooling Tower Blowdown Recovery (CTBR) system is an integrated system to conserve freshwater by increasing the reuse of cooling tower blowdown up to 80% for use as make-up water. CTBR helps reduces operating costs, minimizes a facility’s environmental footprint, and converts waste to value.Learn More
Often, plants are looking to increase their steam boiler efficiency but do not have a sufficient capital budget for a new Reverse Osmosis (RO) system. Kurita America's fully integrated EnergyOUT solution meets this need. Available through an operating lease, EnergyOUT includes equipment, standard service, chemicals, and consumables for a set, monthly price.Learn More about this Kurita America Product
The PhosZero family of cooling water treatment products designed and proven to provide scale and corrosion results better than traditional phosphorus containing chemistries, but without the discharge or aquatic toxicity concerns of older technologies.Learn More about this Kurita America Product
Our monochloramine generator is a complete patented system or the production and addition of monochloramine for disinfection and control of the colonization of waterborne pathogens, such as Legionella, in domestic water plumbing systems. The system is 24/7 remotely monitored and has a much lower corrosivity level than any other disinfectant and is fully compatible with any plumbing material.Learn More about this Kurita America Product
