As Japan’s largest producer of chemicals for consumer use, Kao Group has been committed to environmental protection and implements this throughout its development and production processes. Atlas Copco equipment provides 100% pure, clean air that complies with ISO 8573-1 Class 0 certification and boosts energy efficiency at Kao.

Since Kao Group’s Shanghai Kao Minhang Factory (Shanghai Kao) went into operation in 1996, several Atlas Copco oil-free screw compressors have provided compressed air for the different production lines. Recently, the company purchased another five Atlas Copco oil-free screw compressors, including two ZR 110s, two ZR 75s and one ZR 90 VSD (variable speed drive) compressor.
