Speech of representative
Japan’s annual food loss and scrap volume reach 6.34 million tons*1, which is equivalent to the volume of more than 1,170 10-ton large trucks every day. The annual per capita food loss is as high as 51 kg*2 , ranking last on the list of Asian countries.
Our food arrives on the consumer’s table through many people such as producers, logistics companies, and sellers. By extending the shelf life to reduce food waste, carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced and energy can be saved, which will produce huge economic effects.
We use catalyst technology that is active at room temperature and low temperature to reduce energy consumption caused by food loss and scrap, and to achieve sustainable society.
Under the action of precious metals, FT-eco catalyst not only preserves the freshness of vegetables at room temperature, but also has such functions as anti-mildew, anti-bacteria, deodorization, and decomposing VOC gas that causes indoor air pollution.
Japanese universities and research institutions have scientifically proven that this mechanism does not produce any substances that are harmful to the human health and can maintain its function for a long time. Nano-platinum particles in FT-eco catalyst have been widely used in medical, pharmaceutical, beauty and health products.
At present, some parts of the world are facing food shortages; on the contrary, some countries waste a lot of food, and the problem of uneven distribution of global food supply is accelerating. In the least developed countries, about 800 million people are facing diseases and health problems due to severe hunger and malnutrition, and the huge losses incurred by producers in the process of delivering food to consumers without the introduction of the cold chain are also a major issue.
The FT-eco catalyst, which preserves vegetable freshness at room temperature, and has anti-mildew, antibacterial, and deodorization activities, is an epoch-making product that can contribute to these areas, and we will further promote research and development so that this technology can bring smiles to the people of the countries facing food problems in the world.
