From Insulation to Energy ConservationFumitaka Nakamura, President and Representative Director

We established Nippon Aqua in November 2004 with the desire to change the living environment in Japan. Since then, we have devoted ourselves to promoting the use of AQUA FOAM, an in-situ foamed polyurethane insulation material featuring high airtightness and thermal insulation.

Energy is used in homes for purposes including heating and cooling, water heating, cooking, and home appliances such as refrigerators, computers, and televisions, among many others. Of these, heating and cooling and water heating are said to account for 63% of the energy consumed in the home.

In 1999, the Ministry of Construction (now the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism) revised the previous energy conservation standards for housing and established new standards (the Next Generation Energy Conservation Standards) with the aim of reducing this consumption even further to prevent global warming. The standards were subsequently amended in 2013. Energy conservation standards are designed to improve the energy efficiency of homes, but if we broaden our perspective, the main goal is to build high-quality homes. This can be expressed in four key words: comfort, health, energy conservation, and durability. Achieving this demands higher levels of thermal insulation and airtightness than in the past.

With this policy push, Nippon Aqua is expanding the scope of application of its AQUA FOAM heat insulation material not only to wooden houses but also to buildings. We are committed to further improving the living environment so that everyone can lead a comfortable life. And, even if only in a small way, we are determined to play our part in the prevention of global warming.

We would be grateful for your continued support.
