Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) such as toluene and xylene are discharged during the product paint processes in Toyota Industries' plants.
VOCs raise health concerns since they may chemically react with ultraviolet rays and be converted into compounds that are hazardous to respiratory organs.
Under the Fifth Plan, we set a fiscal 2016 target of attaining emission volume per unit of production below 24 g/m2 for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the automobile body painting process and undertook activities accordingly. In fiscal 2015, we continued our efforts to increase the recovery rate and enhance maintenance and management of thinner, a solvent used for cleaning. Consequently, emission volume per unit of production in fiscal 2015 was 24 g/m2.
