Eco-Cycle SystemCollection and Recycling of Fire Extinguishers

HATSUTA incorporates considerations for recycling when designing its fire extinguishers. Old fire extinguishers are collected and disassembled, with most of its materials reused or recycled. Also, dry chemical extinguishing agents are processed for reuse through our proprietary technology, and are used as extinguishing agents in newly produced fire extinguishers. As a company committed to environmental issues, HATSUTA will continue to do its part to use resources effectively and to prevent pollution of the global environment.

Development of Eco Mark
Certified ProductsEnvironmentally Friendly Fire Extinguishers

In 2003, HATSUTA became the first to receive Eco Mark certification for fire extinguishers. Since then, the company has continued to develop environmentally friendly products, acquiring Eco Mark certification even for fire extinguisher stands and boxes. We have been leading the fire extinguisher industry as the foremost producer of eco-friendly products. In 2011, we were the first in the industry to be licensed to use the CFP Mark, and we won silver prize in the Eco Mark Award 2014 for our pioneering efforts in visualizing CO2 emissions from fire extinguishers.

NEW ECOSS Zero-Emission ServiceFire Extinguisher Rental Service

The NEW ECOSS Zero-Emission Service is a new service, the first of its kind in the industry, that aims to achieve Zero-Emission (zero waste) for fire extinguishers. For a fixed monthly rental fee, the servicing store will inspect and maintain the fire extinguishers for you. In addition, Hatsuta’s proprietary Eco-Cycle System will be available for all fire extinguishers, extinguisher stands, and fire extinguishing systems used by customers. We support our customers’ CSR by recycling, reusing, and disposing of the products properly in the end.
