Safety and Health Environment(SHE) Policy

NF will lead the realization of a sustainable society by building a safe and pleasant workplace to protect all employees, customers and local communities based on respect for human life and dignity, and contributing to environmental protection. In all decision-making, we consider safety, health, and environment (hereafter 'safe environment') as our top priority, and must practice the following.

  • - Management recognizes the value of a safe environment and takes the initiative by making it a top priority for all goals.
  • - Establish and faithfully implement a strict safe environment management system to comply with domestic and foreign laws and agreements related to safe environment and to prevent accidents.
  • - We provide the necessary resources for continuous improvement of the safety environment, and share the safety environment policy and management performance with all stakeholders.
  • - To create a safe and healthy working environment, we ensure that all employees participate and communicate in safety and environment activities, and identify all safety and health risk factors and continuously improve them.
  • - We must do our best to reduce environmental pollutants and protect the environment, and lead a sustainable future.

Based on this policy, NF recognizes the importance of a safe environment and prevents accidents and guarantees a safe working environment through the participation and voluntary practice of all members.

NF systematically manages the safety of not only employees, but also workers and visitors of partner companies through the operation of the global-level environmental management system (ISO 14001), quality/environmental management system (ISO9001), and medical device quality management system (ISO13485). do.

ESG Management

Does it take carbon to make oxygen?

The use of MOSS can reduce carbon emissions.

Liquid oxygen production: In order to make liquid oxygen, the temperature must be lowered to -183 degrees by fractional distillation. Because the boiling point of oxygen is low, various facilities such as cryogenic expanders, heat exchangers, valves, and storage tanks are required. 24,000kw/h of electricity is required to produce 15 bottles of 160Kg liquefied oxygen (=2,400kg), and at this time, 11,191.2kgco2 of carbon dioxide is generated.

Liquid oxygen tank: The weight of an empty liquid oxygen tank is 80 kg. An average of 1.83 tons of carbon dioxide is emitted to produce 1 ton of steel, and 12.2 kgco2 of carbon is emitted when a liquefied oxygen tank is used for 10 years.

Oxygen delivery: Oxygen contained in the oxygen cylinder generates 4.3kgco2 of carbon when it travels 17.25km by vehicle. 48.8kgco2 of CO2 is generated when traveling 100km with a diesel truck loaded with oxygen cylinders.

When liquid oxygen is used in hospitals, 11.252.2kgco2 of carbon dioxide is generated per bottle from production to transportation. 1,695.6 pine trees are needed to offset the carbon dioxide generated at this time.

The oxygen produced by MOSS provides clean oxygen by separating oxygen in real time at room temperature, so carbon generation in the process of making and transporting oxygen can be significantly reduced.

perating one OSS-450BS for 1 month has the effect of 15 liquefied oxygen cylinders.
At this time, the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by electricity consumption is 1,232.9kgco2.

Even if you use NF's MOSS instead of liquefied oxygen tank for just one month, it is effective to plant 1,508 pine trees. (138,096 trees per year)

* About 1 pine tree must be planted to offset 3.0kgco2 of carbon dioxide emitted.

ESG Campaign

Application of eco-friendly export packaging materials

NF is company that strives to realize ESG mangement
In order to reduce the amount of carbon emissions generated during transportation, the existing wooden packaging package for export is converted into a paper carton package to reduce shipping weight.

Environmental industry

NF's Environmental/Industrial Oxygen Generator Business It is attracting attention as a future industry that builds a better environment by resolving odors and removing pollutants from pig farms, sewage treatment plants, and urban wastewater facilities.
