KEY WORD To tell you who we are

Harima: The pine chemicals company

70 years in modern pine chemical industry

We apply the power of chemistry to transform the natural rosin of pine into products for enriching people's lives.

Rosin, Fatty Acid,
Turpentine

Chemical resources extracted from pine trees include the resin component "rosin," a vegetable oil "fatty acid," and the extraction solvent "turpentine." They are the raw materials for an array of products essential to our daily life.

Harima's share in world consumption of rosin:

10

Globally, a total of approximately 1.18 million tons of rosin is produced in a year.* Harima Chemicals uses about 10% (118,000 tons) of the total to create its various chemical products.
* Estimate by Harima Chemicals Group, Inc.

Self-sufficiency:

60%

About 60% of the rosin we use every year is procured from within Harima Chemicals. This high degree of self-sufficiency is achieved by producing our own rosin at Kagokawa Plant and some overseas locations, which ensures stable supply at all times.

Renewable Resource

Unlike petroleum, coal, and other fossil resources that are facing depletion problems, pine trees, the basic resource material for Harima Chemicals, are renewable by forestation in a cycle of 20-30 years.

In pursuit of
Zero Carbon

Harima Chemicals helps in achieving the Zero Carbon Society by seeking to reduce CO2 emissions to zero by using pine trees, which grow by absorbing CO2, and further by utilizing the byproducts of the production processes as biomass fuel.
