Responsibilities as a silica manufacturer

We are a manufacturer specializing in the production and sale of wet-process silica as a member of the Tosoh Group.

    Tosoh Silica's message of coexistence with the natural environment

    Tosoh Silica endeavors to develop products that address recent environmental issues, such as silica for fuel-efficient tires that contributes to the reduction of CO₂ emissions, as well as silica that can be blended into waterborne paints.

    In response to the Japanese government's Declaration of Carbon Neutrality for the year 2050 and its revised greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets for fiscal 2030, the Tosoh Group has established GHG reduction targets, and we are promoting our own initiatives.

    We are also working to preserve the natural environment by participating in local river cleanups and forest maintenance activities, and through our corporate activities we contribute to the creation of a sustainable society.
