Shimadzu Environmental Analytical and
Rapid global economic and societal growth and development have resulted in problems with large storms, flooding, and other natural disasters from climate change and problems with environmental pollution from large quantities of waste and hazardous substances.
At Shimadzu, in an effort to help solve environmental challenges and achieve SDGs, we contribute to establishing a sustainable society by offering a wide variety of instruments and services for analyzing and measuring the environment.
Given that drinking water quality standards are specified by individual countries, Shimadzu contributes to supplying safe and secure drinking water by providing analytical and measuring instruments and services for testing drinking water.
Monitoring water outflows from factories and daily living is very important for preventing water pollution. In particular, effluents from business operations that discharge water contaminated with hazardous substances harmful to our living environment must be managed according to strict standards.
River Water and Seawater
It is also important to appropriately test the water quality of rivers, lakes, and seawater based on environmental standards specified for protecting human health and living environments. Shimadzu contributes to ensuring the safety of environmental waters by supplying analytical and measuring instruments for testing whether they meet specified water quality standards.
Given that air pollution is caused by hazardous substances, particulates, and other substances contained in factory emissions, automotive exhaust emissions, and so on, it is important to monitor the pollutants in such pollution sources. Shimadzu contributes to atmospheric environmental protection by developing and supplying relevant analytical and measuring instruments.
Soil pollution occurs when heavy metals, organic solvents, or other hazardous substances are leaked from factories that use those substances or inappropriately buried, for example. Shimadzu contributes to the protection of soil environments by developing and supplying relevant analytical and measuring instruments.
Waste and Hazardous Substances
Shimadzu contributes in the field of waste management and recycling as well. In order to recycle waste plastic materials, it is important to sort the materials accurately. Analyzing chemical components in mud, gravel, and other materials is essential for appropriately managing those materials as industrial waste.
Marine microplastics have also become a major environmental problem. Shimadzu contributes to building a recycling-oriented society by developing and supplying relevant analytical and measuring instruments.
Renewable Energy/Environmentally-Friendly Materials
We also contribute to researching renewable energies and new environmentally-friendly materials, which are essential for the future of humankind and society. As economic growth and development progress globally, demand for energy continues to expand and there is increasing anticipation for technologies related to renewable energies for achieving a sustainable society. Shimadzu analytical and measuring instruments contribute to research and development of power generated from biofuels, biomass, or hydrogen, and to development of new environmentally-friendly materials with low environmental impact derived from nature.
