Daikin Industries has established “The Group Basic Environmental Policy” to promote Environmental
consideration and response, targeting the effective use of resources.
In the case of Chemical division, HEROFLON(S.p.A), an Italian fluoroplastic compound manufacturer acquired in 2017, is involved in the fluoroplastic recovery and recycling business.
Currently, regardless of whether made in-house products or not, HEROFLON collects cutting debris from the production process of fluoroplastic (PTFE, PFA, FEP) and super engineering plastic (PEEK). These waste materials are turned into usable products by means of in-house processes such as washing, mixing and re-pelletizing. The remanufactured materials are used in a variety of industrial applications such as gaskets, sealing elements and semi-finished materials for tubes and pipes.
