We succeeded in developing motor vehicle lubricants, industrial lubricants and grease using base oils derived from vegetables such as sugar cane and soya beans. The [newly developed] base oils are made up of only carbon and hydrogen and we are the first in Japan to succeed in developing lubricants and others using 100% of this base oil.the company claimed in a press release

In 2019, the company announced its long-term plans to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and has been developing lubricants that will reduce carbon dioxide emissions for the product’s life cycle, from the sourcing of raw materials to production, supply chain and disposal.
