Case study

TBM offers a variety of products using environmentally friendly materials, such as LIMEX, a new material whose main raw material is limestone, and CirculeX, a recycled material that promotes material circulation.

LIMEX materials are currently being used by more than 10,000* companies and local governments as an alternative to various plastic and paper products such as printed matter, bags, food containers, stationery, toys, household goods, packaging, and labels. Regarding the environmental impact that occurs during a product's lifecycle, we are working to visualize and control the environmental impact through LCA. If you have any questions regarding our products, please feel free to contact us using the contact information below. We will explain the cost and adoption examples.
