Kyocera Bags Two Environment Awards

Kyocera has received 2016 Environment Minister’s Award, having received the annual award now seven times.
On this occasion, the OEM was recognized under two different categories. According to Kyocera, its Kyoto Ayabe manufacturing plant (Kyoto Pref., Japan) was awarded for its Global Warming Prevention Activity, under the implementation of countermeasures / dissemination category. Kyocera was also recognized under the technology development/product category, for its collaborated efforts in developing the residential-use solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) co-generation system.
The system, namely ENE-FARM Type S, was jointly developed with Osaka Gas Co., Ltd, Aisin Seiki Co., Ltd., and Noritz Corporation. Kyocera developed the cell stack, which acts as the core piece of equipment in the ENE-FARM Type S.
To recognize individuals and groups that contribute to the prevention of climate change, Japan’s Ministry of the Environment established the award in 1998. It is presented every year in December, coinciding with Global Warming Prevention Month.
