°÷Activities to reduce the hazardous substances for °»Global Environment Conservation,°… RoHS Compliance
With our corporate policy, which newly added the promise to provide the nature-friendly battery for °»Global Environment Conservation,°… NIRON is making advanced efforts on development of super high efficiency and long life products, activities to reduce the hazardous substances to environment, and RoHS ( the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances ) compliance.
On 13 February, 2003, the European Union (EU) issued Directives on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS).The WEEE Directive specifies ten types of electrical and electronic equipments to reduce their amount of waste and level of hazard, and obliges to establish a comprehensive segregation and collection system. The RoHS Directive is applied to eight out of those ten WEEE-applied equipments with regard to the use of hazardous substances.
Following six substances will be banned as of 1 July 2006.
°¶PBB ( polybrpminated biphenyls )
°¶PbdPBDE ° polybrominated diphenyl ethers°ň
As an activity to reduce the substances hazardous to environment, we are energetically promoting RoHS conversion of our current products which are capable of RoHS compliant and planned to be produced after July 2006, while introducing production facilities, replacing parts and substances, and arranging suitable components.As for our future products we will design not to contain the hazardous substances but to select suitable parts and substances in accordance with the RoHS Directive. Also we attempt to develop products with high efficiency and longer life (expected ten years or longer) contributing to industrial waste reduction and global warming prevention.
Since January 2005, we have been delivering RoHS compliant products serially subsequent to inventory adjustment. Moreover, the number of our products has been increased and it reached 15 product lines (12 series) in September. However, in the meantime, three types of products will be available on the market concurrently; RoHS compliant, lead- free, and the current products. We are sorry to inform that we raise 1,000 JPY per RoHS compliant product before the inventory adjustment is completed.
We would truly appreciate your understanding of this provisional condition in order to deal with the immediate market demand and the inventory issue in practice.
RoHS compliant products
RoHS compliant products available after September
NIPRON is progressively committing projects for °»globe environment conservation.°… Our company is working as the most advanced company in lead-free, in accordance with the RoHS (the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances) Directive.
NIPRON is working, as a pioneer, for the global warming prevention by raising the exchange efficiency of various batteries such as ATX power supply from the averaged rate of approximately 68% to 75 - 80-strong % , which leads to the significant reduction of energy loss on global basis.
