High-Performance and Eco-Friendly Facility
All the manufacturing processes of SEED 1dayPure® moisture lenses are strictly managed at SEED Kounosu laboratory. Great care is taken in producing each contact lens at the manufacturing plant to ensure the utmost safety of the patients eyes. SEED takes its environmental responsibility very seriously and ensures its facilities are eco-friendly.
Efficient use of Energy
Photovoltaic power generation systems are set on the roof, utilizing clean energy and shielding effect. In addition, we introduced energy management system (FEMS) making it possible to check the amount of electricity used to achieve eco-friendly manufacturing with reduced waste.
Large Reduction of Water Consumption
Large amounts of pure water are used during the manufacturing process of soft contact lenses and to utilise discharged water from the factory, SEED have built a water recycling system for large-scale water conservation.
In addition, SEED have created eco-friendly technologies and facilities, i.e. the recycling of the plastics emitted from the manufacturing processes, and are currently working on the conservation of global environment through various company activities.
High Standard of Quality Management
To ensure the highest quality of SEED lenses, only products which have passed through our strict quality management system and thorough inspection processes are shipped.
Furthermore, using the two-dimensional code and ID tag, an integrated management system has been implemented for production and distribution, enabling all lenses to be traced.
