Hydrocarbon absorption and VOC collection


Tosoh develops zeolites that help prevent pollution through efficient absorption of hydrocarbons in automobile exhaust and other substances. Zeolites can also be used to collect volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from factory exhaust.

Cutting edge material with broad applications and eco-benefits

Tosoh zirconia (yttria-stabilized zirconia, or YTZ) brings ecological benefits to a broad range of products, including solid oxide fuel and oxygen NOx sensors in the automotive field.
Zirconia exhibits superior mechanical properties, such as high strength and flexibility, and represents a technological breakthrough in surpassing the strength limitations of traditional fine ceramics. Tosoh zirconia is also used for fabrication of leading-edge artificial teeth.

Tosoh markets materials to the automotive industry for cleaner operating cars, provides environmental analysis to manufacturers, and supplies wastewater treatment technology.
