Company History

 
August 28, 2011 Organized with a capital of 9.3 million yen.
Established for the purpose of researching, developing, manufacturing, and marketing metal nanoparticle solutions.
 August 2011 Started research & development of an anti-bacterial&deodorizing toothpaste that contains the platinum nanoparticle solution.
[Demonstration tests by trial users were performed.]
 September 2011 Started to investigate anti-fungal potential of metal nanoparticle solutions.
 October 2011 Started research & development of palladium nanoparticle solution.
 December 2011 Started to examine the adherence of metal nanoparticles (gold, platinum, or palladium nanoparticles) on ceramic balls.
 February 2012 Started to examine if some metal nanoparticle solution can reduce radioactivity (*decompose the radioactive materials).
 July 2012 Accredited by Kansai Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry as one of “Specified research & development plan for advansed craftsmanship by Small & Medium enterprises (SMEs)” – 7/11 20120619, Kinki No. 1, Kinki 1207001. (This is accredited to outstanding SMEs that have produced innovative products and technologies.)

 

[Development of anti-bacterial additives for aqueous cutting fluid that contains platinum nanoparticles and filtration equipment]

 August 2012  Examined anti-bacterial effect of wooden cutting board (both the surface and the inside) that has been immersed in the platinum nanoparticle solution.
September 2012 Demonstration of anti-bacterial effect of rubber cutting boards of other companies.
[We thought as follows:
Since Ag+ (silver) ion exerts anti-bacterial activity, its activity is expected to be reduced when all of the ions are oxidized. Thus, we examined if there is anti-bacterial properties in products of other companies. The results showed no anti-bacterial properties on the surface of those cutting boards.]
October 2012  Started actual-scale marketing of Hinoki (Japanese cypress) cutting board with platinum nanoparticles.
 November 2012  Started the research & development of anti-bacterial toothbrushes mixed with platinum nanoparticle solution (Product name: Platina Smile).
[The toothbrush exerts anti-bacterial effects against periodontal bacteria, up to inside of the bristles.]
 December 2012 Started the research & development plan for “Water purification equipment with platinum nanoparticles to turn seawater into fresh water that can be utilized as agricultural water” for the Iran government.

 

Approved for “Management Innovation Plan” by Osaka Prefecture. No. 1122-88 of “Osaka-Prefecture-Shirei-Keishi (Meaning: Directive for management plan)”

 February 2013 Anti-bacterial, deodorizing toothpaste/liquid containing the platinum nanoparticle solution were  manufactured and marketed.
 May 2013 Participated as an exhibitor of the exhibition at the 34th Food & Catering Show (Tokyo Big Sight).

 

Planted organic rice in Kyotango City, Kyoto (the 4th year; the area is expanded to one town this year).

 June 2013  Started sales of Hinoki (Japanese cypress) cutting boards that have been immersed in the platinum nanoparticle solution at TOKYU HANDS stores.
Started trial sales of “Platinum Eco” fuel efficiency improving additive for gasoline-powered car.”Development of Hinoki cutting board with continuous anti-bacterial/anti-viral effects by immersion in platinum nanoparticle solution” was selected for “Second Sogyo (Meaning: bussiness founding)” of FY2012 Sogyo Grant.
 September 2013  “Research & Development of anti-bacterial/anti-viral facemasks using platinum nanoparticles” was adopted and subject to the support grant for activating small-scale bussinesses.
 October 2013  “Development of radiator fluid containing the platinum nanoparticle solution to improve fuel efficiency of internal combustion engine” was selected in the support project for obtainment of markets using community potential, etc. by Central Federation of Societies of Commerce and Industry.
 November 2013  Implemented a capital increase to 22.3 million yen.
 May 2014  Started sales of “Anti-bacterial toothbrush” at TOKYU HANDS stores.

 

“Toothbrush containing platinum nanoparticles that has a protective effect against tooth decay without toothpaste” was selected in the Monozukuri (craftsmanship) Business/Service Innovation Project 2013 for Small & Medium enterprises.
