Environmentally Friendly Products

Through the entire life cycle of products including merchandise development, production, distribution, consumption, disposal and recycling, where traditionally economic efficiency and mass production were the primary focus, the trend of our times strongly urges us to put more importance on environmental conservation and the reduction of the environmental burden. Kurabo focuses on sound environment for people and the earth, aims to reduce the environmental burden throughout the entire stage of the product life cycle. 

Controllable Pleats Material ETERNALVEIL


1. Wrinkle preventing effect
  ・ Neatness of the clothes is retained even after wearing all day long.
  ・ Hardly any ironing is required after washing.
     * Equivalent to Class 4 of Wash & Wear Performance

2. Controll of crease
  ・ Pleats retention
  ・ Creating vintage taste by retaining creases

3. Soft texture of cotton

Contribution to the environment

Energy Saving

  ・ Hardly any wrinkles are created after washing and drying. Meanwhile, 
    as pleats are firmly retained, you can save trouble in ironing.

  ・ Because this material is less likely to create wrinkles and can keep
    shape even after wearing all day long, best suited for Cool Biz casual
    fashions that requires neatness.

Reborn from useless into useful
The future of cloth waste on sewing


1. We collect the cutting wastes of the sewing process.
  ・ Approximately 10-20% of the use cloth occur as a cutting wastes.
  ・ By the cooperation with the sewing process, we separate and collect the           cutting wastes according composition and colors.

2. We reuse the cutting wastes as raw materials of textiles.  

Contribution to the environment

Using resources effectively and reduction of wastes

  ・ We reuse the cutting wastes as raw materials of textiles

  ・ We are developing about reusing as raw materials of paper-products or                plastic products.

High performance rigid urethan foam insulation material for detached house KURANZERO SERIES


1. Rigid urethane board for construction from outside.  KURANZERO BOARD
     ・  By laminating aluminum foil, thermal barrier effect is expected in addition
         to thermal insulation performance.

2. Spray and foaming type at construction   KURANZERO SPRAY
     ・  This is a highly airtight insulation material that is sprayed and foamed
         without gaps from the inside.

3. Construction method combining the both  Double Insulation Method

Contribution to the environment

Energy Saving

  ・ With the high thermal insulation performance and air-tightness, air
    conditioning cost can be saved.

Ozone layer protection and warming prevention

  ・ Urethane forming without chlorofluorocarbon, which is harmful to ozone

  ・ Devoid of substances causative of sick house syndrome such as

Exterior products for houses and buildings  KURATTICE ECO


1. The surface layer is a wooden skin tone by composite of wood and resin.
    The stone pattern is also possible.

2. Because the base material is aluminum core, it is light weight and high

3. Excellent durability because of the strong adhesion of the surface layer and
    the core material. 

Contribution to the environment

Energy Saving

  ・ Reduction of construction load by realizing weight reduction.

  ・ Because of its high durability, it can be used without maintenance for 
         a long time. Also there is no need to worry about corrosion.

Fluidized bed boiler using biomass fuel Biomass boiler


1. Uses wood based biomass fuel such as construction waste.

2. Capable of combusting multi-fuel including moist sludge and plastic waste.

Contribution to the environment

Prevention of warming

  ・ Collects and effectively uses the thermal energy.
  ・ Not using fossil fuel allows less CO2 emissions.

Reduction in wastes

  ・ Reduces wood based biomass fuel (wastes such as construction waste)
    by 90 to 95% in volume.



1. Uses exhaust gas (CO2) produced in cogeneration (reuse of residual heat
  from the generation for air heating, etc.) to enhance growth of plants.

2. Reduces hazardous nitrogen oxide (NOx) contained in exhaust gas to the
  atmospheric level.

3. Concentration of leak ammonia is 1 ppm or less.

Contribution to the environment

Prevention of air pollution

  ・ Purifies exhaust gas produced in cogeneration and removes hazardous
    nitrogen oxide.

Prevention of warming

  ・ In addition to the merit of cogeneration (recovery of thermal energy),
    reduces CO2 in exhaust gas by making greenhouse plants absorb it.

Utilization of renewable energy

Kurabo has been focusing its efforts not only on energy saving but also on use of natural energy. In addition to photovoltaic power generation that was introduced to some of the Company plants such as Tokushima Plant and Mie Plant, the former Tsu Plant site and the former Hojo Mill site have been rented out for Mega-Solar generation plants. Further, we have constructed a biomass power generation plant at a site adjacent to Tokushima Plant, and it generates electricity. In making effort for generation business using renewable energy, it is expected to contribute to increasing stable power supply as well as to reducing CO2 emission for sake of the whole society.

Biomass power generation plant

The biomass power generation plant constructed in Tokushima consists of the steam turbine combined with the "fluidized bed boiler" based on the technology of our Engineering Department, which utilizes timber from forest thinning, etc. as fuel. The annual planned power output is about 40 million kWh, which is equal to the amount of power used by 11,000 homes, it started the operation from July 2016.
Further, in addition to supplying generated power, this new plant contributes to effective use of thermal energy and energy saving of Tokushima Plant through reusing, in Tokushima Plant, the steam that has been used for power generation.
