U.S. EPA Recognizes Japanese Industrial Cleaning Association
The Japan Industrial Conference on Cleaning (JICC), of which DuPont Mitsui Fluorochemicals is an active member, recently received the 2007 Best-of-the-Best Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The EPA presented the award to organizations which have made the exceptional contributions to protection of the stratospheric ozone layer. JICC is an association of 130 companies which make cleaning machines and cleaning agents for industrial cleaning process. In 1994, the association set a goal to accelerate the elimination of 1,1,1-trichloroethane, CFC-113 and other ozone-depleting solvents that are used in industrial cleaning processes.
“Industrial cleaning is a critical process in the production of automobile, semiconductor and precision instruments that must meet defect-free and high- performance requirements. By developing the zero-ozone-depleting alternative HFC-43-10, DuPont Fluorochemicals provided an important solution that enabled the industry to meet its goal,” said Larry Nushihara, global business manager, DuPont™ Vertrel® Specialty Fluids. “I am very happy and proud of significant contribution we provided which led to JICC receiving this prestigious award from the U.S. EPA.”
HFC 43-10 is manufactured at the DuPont Mitsui Fluorochemicals plant in Shimizu Its blended products are marketed globally by DuPont Fluorochemicals under the Vertrel® specialty fluids brand.
