Showa Denko Expands Utilization of Used Plastic to Produce Ammonia

Showa Denko has completed the expansion of used-plastic gasification facility at the Kawasaki Plant. As part of its basic chemicals business, SDK is producing ammonia at Kawasaki. SDK processes used plastic to obtain part of hydrogen necessary for the synthesis of ammonia. As an industrial material, ammonia is used in the production of synthetic fibers and metal surface treatment for automotive and construction machinery parts. The demand for ammonia used for removing nitrogen oxides contained in exhaust gas from thermal electric power plants and other facilities has been increasing in recent years. Furthermore, SDK's liquefied ammonia (trade name: Ecoann(TM)) has been approved and rated high as "eco-friendly goods for procurement" by major electric power companies because the product is partly based on used plastic. The method to produce hydrogen from used plastic entails significantly lower environmental burden compared to the conventional methods to produce hydrogen from petroleum-derived raw materials. By providing products indispensable for protecting the environment and improving social infrastructure, SDK will continue meeting the expectations of society and local communities.

Showa Denko Launches New HCAP Cosmetic Material

Showa Denko has developed HCAP(TM) (2-palmitoyl hydroxycitric acid; a hydroxycitric acid derivative) as a cosmetic raw material that deeply permeates the skin and cell membrane, contributing significantly to the effect of slimming and skin anti-aging. Hydroxycitric acid is an organic acid contained in the fruit skin of garcinia cambogia, a plant that grows in Southeast Asia. While the fruit skin of garcinia cambogia has long been used as spice, it is now attracting attention as a slimming supplement due to its ability to block fat synthesis. As HCA is water-soluble and does not readily permeate the skin, it was difficult to use HCA in cosmetics. SDK, however, has developed a lipophilic derivative of HCA, increasing transdermal permeability of the active compound. The use of HCAP(TM) in cosmetics is expected to contribute significantly to both slimming and anti-aging purposes, including the prevention of skin saggings. In this connection, SDK is already selling Hi-Carnitine (HLC), a cosmetic raw material that promotes fat combustion and moisturizes the skin. Thus, SDK can now provide slimming agents based on two different approaches, namely, HCAP(TM), which controls fat accumulation; and HLC, which reduces accumulated fat by combustion. SDK will present its HCAP(TM) and HLC at the 7th Cosmetic Ingredients & Technology Exhibition Japan (CITE Japan 2015) to be held at Pacifico Yokohama from June 3 through 5 (SDK's booth: A10-1).
