Bio-CO2 For Greener Earth (Part 4)

news | 11 August 2020
Tag: CO2 ethanol food and beverage thailand zeolite

Would you support Eco-Friendly world? You can with Bio-CO2 !
By F.S.

Looking into ASEAN region, Thailand is a major producer of bio-ethanol in Southeast Asia.
The dependence on energy imports has been increasing with the country’s economic development.
Therefore, government of Thailand is promoting self-sufficient energy by encouraging ethanol production to ensure a stable supply of energy.

While conducting sales of our adsorbents (Zeolites) for dehydration equipment in the growing ethanol industry. 
We found that a large amount of unused carbon dioxide has been released to the atmosphere every year.
Based on hearings from customers, about 300 million tons of carbon dioxide are generated as by-product from ethanol fermentation process.
We believe that effective utilization of this carbon dioxide could contribute to: the reduction of greenhouse gases and the cost of bioethanol.

When we analyzed the quality of this carbon dioxide, we found that the crude gas had a high purity of 99.5%, which is finer to other sources like oil refining.
Although further refining is required, capital investment would be relatively low.
So, we could deliver reasonable price and high-quality carbon dioxide to customers.

Our investigation and study showing that the concept is becoming feasible. 
Next step: we are looking for partners who interested to carry out this project together.
No limitation of industry you’re from, we welcome anyone who want to live in a lovely sustainable planet.

In the final chapter, we would like to share our passion for this project, if you feel interested please follow us till the final chapter.

Would you support Eco-Friendly world? You can with Bio-CO2 !
By F.S.

Global warming, our breath. Many readers may have a bad impression of carbon dioxide. 
But on the other hand, carbon dioxide is also essential to our lives
Carbon dioxide is used as a foaming agent for carbonated drinks such as soda and ‘chuhai’ (“shōchū highball”). 
It is also used for dry-ice for cooling in-flight meals, ice cream and frozen foods.

Recently, carbon dioxide has been playing an active role in beauty and health fields, such as lotions containing carbon dioxide.
In the industrial field, it is used for rubber molding blasting and welding.
Now you know that carbon dioxide is critical to our lives.
Unfortunately, many of these are made from the by-products of oil refining.

If these products are of plant origin and can contribute to the prevention of global warming, consumers will be excited.

Then, what can we do in order to bring the product to market? 
In the next part, we will explain in detail about our startup activities in Thailand.

Bio-CO2 For Greener Earth (Part 2)

Tag: CO2 ethanol food and beverage thailand

Would you support Eco-Friendly world? You can with Bio-CO2 !

By F.S.

Our mission is to continue providing new value to the world.
While considering a new project, we wanted to contribute to the prevention of global warming through our business.

I got an information from a friend in Indonesia about a company that uses carbon dioxide from bioethanol production by-product, for drinks and dry ice.
That was a hint for this project startup.
In ASEAN countries, many companies are producing bioethanol for fuel, from sugar cane and cassava as a policy to get out of dependence on oil. Demand for carbonated drinks is also growing.

So what are the issue for these industries?

Many beverage manufacturers use carbon dioxide for raw material as by-product of oil and natural gas.
Due to spread of COV-19, suppliers are forced to decrease their operation rate, and supply/demand balance of CO2 is tighten in the world.
Beverage manufactures are thriving to find supply during this pandemic.
The risk is threatening the industry, and manufacturers are trying to find new sources for CO2
On the other hand, the development of eco-friendly products is being actively promoted as a trend in the world. 
In fact, beverage manufacturers in Europe and the United States are also actively incorporating bio-fieondly and eco-friendly raw materials.

While proceeding our study, we focus on Thailand market.

Thailand is one of the world-ranked Ethanol producer and beverage manufacturers, mainly rely on CO2 from refineries industry.
In addition, a lot of CO2 is emitted from bio-ethanol fermentation process and Thai government wants to reduce total emission of CO2
The change of purchasing policy in beverage manufacturers occurred in Europe and United States is expected to happen in Thailand as “new normal”. 
So, I thought we can provide value to this industry by making effective use of CO2 from bioethanol. 
Therefore, we want to you to be prepared of ‘new normal’ in Thailand, which could happen in near future, by commercializing eco-friendly CO2 and building a stable supply system.

We believe our Bio-CO2 project would be the solution for this industry!

Inquiry and consulting are always welcome! Please feel free to share your interest.

Is it possible to maintain BOTH a convenient life and a beautiful earth?

Humans are generating more products and other materials to support people’s comfortable lives,
while continuing to shorten the life of the earth, such as the emission of greenhouse gases and industrial waste.

While working for a chemical manufacturer, I suddenly feel such a contradiction.
Can we fulfill our role and contribute to a sustainable world?
With that in mind, we started one project.

That is the Bio-CO2 project.

Do you know that carbon dioxide is used in carbonated drinks such as cider and energy drinks?
This industrial carbon dioxide is refined from oil and natural gas and delivered to beverage manufacturers.
Though we already make use of this byproduct, global warming is progressing at faster pace.
Not only our company, but the consumers also starting to consider more on eco-friendly production, less negative impact to world ecosystem. Therefore, we started the Bio-CO2 project to reduce greenhouse gases in this industry so that consumers themselves can feel they’re preserving mother nature.

Showa Denko to Acquire ILAG Group (Global Non-stick Coatings Manufacturer)

news | 28 May 2019
Tag: automotive ilag non stick coating

Showa Denko (SDK) has decided to acquire all shares in ILAG Industrielack AG, which leads the ILAG Group (ILAG), a specialty non-stick coating chemicals manufacturing company headquartered in Wangen, Switzerland, and signed a stock purchase and sale agreement with the current owners, a coalition of investors led by Helvetica Capital AG, a Swiss-based private equity firm.

Non-stick coating chemicals (NSCs) are used on consumer goods such as cookware, bakeware, and home electrical appliances, and also on industrial goods including automotive parts and other industrial equipment, for the purposes of preventing sticking of substances on their surfaces and supporting low friction and release during use. The global market for NSCs is put about JPY 130 billion (about $1.2 billion) a year (SDK’s estimate for 2019).

ILAG has the fourth largest share in the consumer-goods NSC market of worldwide operating companies, and the second largest share of this segment in Europe. Thus ILAG brand has strong presence in the European market. ILAG’s products are applied not only on consumer goods but also on industrial goods including automotive parts. ILAG exports its products manufactured in Switzerland to more than 50 countries. Moreover, ILAG has a production base in China, and consumer goods manufactured by ILAG’s customers in China are sold worldwide. On the other hand, GMM Group (GMM), a manufacturer of NSCs which SDK acquired in November 2016, has a large market share in NSC market for consumer goods in the US, and GMM’s main customers are major cookware/bakeware manufacturers based in the United States. Therefore, SDK is confident that ILAG and GMM are highly synergetic. For example, the two companies can play complimentary roles in terms of each company’s main markets in the world. After the acquisition of ILAG, annual sales figure of SDK’s NSC business will leap up to about $60 million (about JPY 6.6 billion). As a result, SDK’s NSC business will have strong presence and competitiveness in global market, especially in the field of consumer goods.

SDK’s functional polymer/monomer business sector manufactures and sells materials for coatings for various purposes, and have rich expertise in prescription and manufacturing of raw materials for high-performance coatings and evaluation of performance of those coatings. NSCs can be classified into three categories in terms of raw materials, namely, fluorinated-resin based, silicon based, and Sol-Gel based coatings. Therefore, SDK can offer optimum solutions to its own NSC business by taking advantage of its wide-ranging businesses, products and technologies as an integrated chemical company. Furthermore, in July 2019, SDK will establish the Coating Materials Department within the Company in order to manage its global NSC business including ILAG and GMM in an integrated manner.

The Showa Denko Group has a vision of becoming a corporate group of Koseiha businesses (individualized businesses), which can maintain profitability and stability at high levels in each business sector, and aims to make more than half of its business sectors Koseiha businesses by 2025. We will nourish our NSC business to become a Koseiha business having stable earning power by 2025, by realizing synergy effects of the acquisition, business expansion and global operation integrated with those of our existing businesses and technologies.

The change of ownership will be completed within a couple of months. The involved parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price and terms of the agreement,

[Outline of ILAG Industrielack AG]

1)Company name:
ILAG Industrielack AG
2)Scope of business:
Manufacturing and sale of nonstick-coating chemicals applicable both to consumer goods and industrial goods
3)Establishment:
December 1955
4)Head office:

Analysis of Various Oligosaccharides by HILIC Mode

It is known that oligosaccharides are utilized by gut bacteria inside the animal bodies, providing digestive health benefits. HILIC mode are commonly used these days because it provides better separation for oligomers than SEC mode. Shodex™ HILICpak™ VN-50 series columns are specifically developed for the separation of high-molecular weight oligosaccharides that were difficult to be analyzed by previously available HILIC columns.

✓ Nonionic oligosaccharides such as dextrin, N-acetylchitooligosaccharides (polymer of N-acetylglucosamine) and xylooligosaccharides;
✓ Cationic oligosaccharides, chitosan-oligosaccharides (polymer of glucosamine); and
✓ Anionic oligosaccharides, oligogalacturonic acids

Simultaneous Analysis of Ten Water-Soluble Vitamins Using a Polymer-Based Reversed Phase Column Shodex™ RSpak DE-413L

Methods using microbiological assays, absorption spectrophotometry, and HPLC are laborsome and time consuming process. Use of ODS column with an addition of ion-pair reagent tends to remain on the column and the flow-lines, results in increased background level and lowers the sensitivity. In this application, we aimed to develop a simple method to simultaneously analyze various water-soluble vitamins. We used Shodex™ RSpak DE-413L, a polymer-based reversed phase column, without a use of ion-pair reagent.

LC/MS Analysis of Various Hydrophilic Compounds Using a Polymer-Based Amino Column
– Shodex™ HILICpak™ VG-50 2D

High polar compounds in pharmaceutical and food products are hardly retained under Reversed Phased mode, and to compromise the problem, pre-column derivatization or addition of ion-pair reagent to the eluent are often applied. Drawbacks are the complicated and time taking process of the derivatization and increase of background level caused by the ion-pair reagent residues on the column and the flow-lines.

However, Shodex™ HILICpack™ VG-50 2D, provides the solution with its advantageous analytical features when used under alkaline conditions. LC/MS with ammonia water/acetonitrile gradient elution is effective for good separation and high sensitivity analysis of various hydrophilic compounds. It can analyse saccharides, organic acids, and amino acid simultaneously, and able to monitor caffeine and water-soluble vitamins simultaneously. These can be achieved without using pre-column derivatization nor addition of ion-pairing reagent.

Analysis method of Aggregates and Additives in Antibody Drugs

Antibody drugs are important potent therapeutic drugs. Because of their highly specific targeting capacity to the cancer cells, it can cause less side effects. However, it is known that they may aggregate to form dimers and other larger aggregates during manufacturing process and/or during storage period. Therefore, monitoring of such aggregates are important for quality control (QC) purposes. Shodex™ PROTEIN LW-803 demonstrated its superior separation capability for IgG monomers and its aggregates. While, Shodex™ ODP2 HP-2D proved its separation capability of analyzing non-ionic surfactant, Tween, in the presence of IgG and NaCl, without the necessity of deproteinization nor desalting sample pretreatment.

Tag: gmm non stick coating

Showa Denko K.K. (SDK)  announces that it has decided to acquire all shares of the GMM Group (GMM), a specialty non-stick coating chemicals manufacturing company headquartered in Hong Kong, China, and concluded a stock purchase and sale agreement with GMM.

Non-stick coating chemicals are materials to be coated on consumer goods including cookware, bakeware, and a variety of home electrical appliances, and on industrial goods including automotive parts and other industrial equipment, in order to prevent burning on, fouling, and soiling. The global market for non-stick coating chemicals is put at about JPY 120 billion a year (SDK’s estimate for 2016).

GMM operates non-stick coating chemicals business mainly in the field of consumer goods including cookware, bakeware, and various home electrical appliances. Its major customers are the leading cookware manufacturing companies in the US. GMM has been steadily increasing sales by making the most of the superb properties of its products and the power of the differentiated brands promoted jointly with GMM’s customers. GMM operates two manufacturing units in China and India, and can deliver its highly sophisticated engineering coatings directly to the local cookware manufacturing companies which are entrusted by major cookware makers to manufacture cookware to be sold in the US market. Cookware coated with GMM’s coatings is distributed via top US retailers. It has been estimated that approximately 40 million American families use cookware with GMM’s products on a daily basis.

In line with its ongoing medium-term business plan “Project 2020+” which started at the beginning of 2016, SDK aims to reform its own business structure to have more stable revenue streams, through creation of individualized businesses and increase in the ratio of its overseas sales.

SDK’s acquisition of all shares of GMM of this time is a part of its strategic actions aiming to establish new individualized businesses through extension of the Showa Denko Group’s value chain into downstream markets and the sphere of its technologies, which form the foundation of the Group’s business activities. SDK very highly appreciates the capabilities of Mr. Ravin Gandhi, CEO of GMM, Mr. Raymond Chung, Co-founder & General Manager of GMM, and all employees who work for GMM.

TPNa: Vitamin E Derivative Improves Dark Circles

news | 25 October 2016
Tag: tpna vitamin e

Showa Denko (SDK) has discovered that its “TPNaTM” water-soluble vitamin E derivative, which SDK sells as an ingredient for cosmetics, is effective in improving dark circles around eyes. Following this discovery, SDK started shipment of TPNaTM as an ingredient for eye-care cosmetics.

Sodium dl-α-tocopheryl phosphate (TPNaTM) is a water-soluble vitamin E derivative with special chemical structure developed by SDK, and was approved by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare as a basis of quasi-drug to prevent rough dry skin in 2004. TPNaTM shows anti-inflammatory and moisture-retention effects as an ingredient of cosmetics, and is acclaimed very highly by our customers who manufacture cosmetics.

Dark circles around eyes, on which SDK found TPNaTM has an improving effect, can be categorized into three types: blue circles caused by low microcirculation, brown circles caused by accumulated blood-origin pigments, and black circles caused by slackening or depression of skin. Generally speaking, dark circles around eyes emerge as combination of these three types. Therefore, conventional cosmetics for dark-circle care have mainly been developed as mixtures of ingredients effective for each type of dark circles.

This time, SDK discovered that TPNaTM as a single ingredient can improve multiple types of dark circles through diverse approaches. TPNaTM shows promise of improvement on blue circles because it improves the circulation of the blood and metabolism. SDK also found that TPNaTM has increasing effect on enzymes which take part in breakdown and removal of pigments that cause brown circles. In a clinical test for four weeks, TPNaTM improved the L* parameters (numerical values indicating luminosities of skin colors) of the surfaces of lower eyelids in 82% of examinees.

SDK will exhibit this effectiveness of TPNaTM on dark circles at its corporate booths, one in the general meeting of the International Federation of Societies of Cosmic Chemists (IFSCC) to be held in Orlando, Florida from October 30th to November 2nd, and another in the “in-cosmetics Asia” exhibition to be held in Bangkok, Thailand from November 8th to 10th. SDK classifies its functional chemicals business including cosmetic materials business into “Growth-accelerating business” in its ongoing medium-term business plan, “Project 2020+,” and is promoting this business aggressively. SDK aims to expand its lineup of high-functioning cosmetic materials to meet customers’ expectations.

A clinical test for the effect of TPNaTM on dark circles around eyes
In this test, TPNaTM showed remarkable effect on dark circles around eyes.
Test method: We tested 1% TPNaTM skin cream on 21 Caucasian female examinees (31-49 years old) who have dark circles around eyes. We applied 1% TPNaTM skin cream and a placebo skin cream to dark circles on examinees’ skin for four weeks, and measured changes in L* parameters (numerical values indicating luminosities of skin colors) of the parts of their skin with dark circles.
