Focusing on Hydrogel
A hydrogel is a material which contains abundant water inside.
That is why our body, plant and even the earth belong to a hydrogel.
We found that the functions of water which is an ultimate source of
life activities are effectively controlled by a hydrogel and in consequence
the body and plant functions and even global environment could be
improved by a hydrogel.
Our company which is managing business by a hydrogel is the only
one in the world.
Contribution of Hydrogel to Greening, Farming and Health Care
Watering is absolutely needed for plant growth, but over 95% of the
supplied water such as tap water, rain water, etc. escapes before
uptake by the plant. What a waste! We are facing an urgent water crisis
by global warming. Our proprietary water retaining agent, Sky Gel instantly
absorbs supplied water and retains until the plant takes up the water in
Sky Gel. Sky Gel enables roof and slope planting without irrigation and
in consequence activated such a greening business in Japan.
The requirement of safety, security and nutritiousness for crops is
intensifying more and more all over the world. We developed a new crop
production system (Imec) which grows by separating a plant from culture
medium or soil with the membrane composed of hydrogel. It has been found
that Imec not only provides safe and delicious vegetables but also
minimaizes energy and water consumption.
The regenerative medicine that the diseased tissue or organ of a patient
is regenerated using his own cells, has lately attracted great attention. We
are looking at the development of a new tissue/organ regeneration technology
using our proprietary hydrogel (Mebiol Gel) having sol (at low temp.) - gel
(at high temp.) transition which enables withdrowal of the tissue/organ
regenerated in Mebiol Gel from the gel just by lowering temp. below the
sol - gel temp.
