Katawaku-ecochan contributes to CO2 reductions in public works as well as in private works, and is a construction material which reduces the amount of wood used.
Katawaku-ecochan parallels the spirit of the Kyoto Protocol's efforts to reduce CO2 emissions, to reduce wood resource cutting, recycle organic waste fibers, and reduce industrial waste by reducing CO2 as alternative energy for heavy oil fuel as recycle plastic fuel.
The purpose for developing the Katawaku-ecochan product was from the start, to develop environmentally friendly plywood for concrete formwork. In other words, it is for reducing CO2 emissions, recycling organic waste fibers, conserving global wood resources, and taking good care of the global environment.
Katawaku-ecochan contributes to reductions in CO2 emissions on construction sites in comparison with conventionally coated plywood.
With greater durability in comparison to conventionally coated plywood, replacement quantities are smaller and transportation fuel amounts used for carry-in and carry-out are less, which contributes to CO2 emissions reductions.

This ensures performance of special polypropylene sheets in which organic waste fibers are mixed.
Reduces amount of wood used, reduces cutting of wood, conserves resources, and takes good care of the global environment.
Outer wall, 10 times of reuse
Construction materials that contribute to CO2 emissions reductions and reductions in the amount of wood used are recommended in public works as well as in private works.
Bridge bare concrete, 10 times of reuse
