Osaka Gas Chemical`s coal chemistry technology is based on technology which has been passed down over the years since Osaka Gas started manufacturing city gas from coal 100 years ago. It has developed into the world`s leading technology. Since the 1980`s, we have worked on developing technology to intensively use coal tar, a by-product generated during the manufacture of city gas. We have successfully developed high-function materials such as carbon fibers, fibrous activated carbon and Fluorene. We have also developed various applications which take advantage of the features of these materials. Many manufacturers around the world have selected our products as materials and members to support products indispensable for our daily lives including solar batteries, cellular phones, liquid crystal displays and water purifiers.
