- Our Businesses
A wide range of businesses supporting Japan's nuclear power establishments
ATOX's corporate philosophy is to play an instrumental role in addressing environmental and energy issues, and to contribute to the development of society and the well-being of our employees. As the first in the private sector in Japan to be contracted to decontaminate a nuclear facility, we at Atox have built up a half a century of experience and technology in providing comprehensive maintenance for nuclear power facilities. We are proud to be able to deliver ever higher quality services founded on the trust and experience that we have built up in each of our businesses.
Nuclear Power Plant Maintenance Business
In our Nuclear Power Plant Maintenance Business, which is our core business, we provide a comprehensive range of maintenance services for nuclear power plants, from radiation control and the disposal of radioactive waste, to equipment maintenance, facility management, facility cleaning and decontamination, and the decommissioning of nuclear power plants.
Nuclear Fuel-Cycling Business
In our Nuclear Fuel-Cycling Business we provide a wide variety of services, ranging from the operation and maintenance of nuclear fuel reprocessing plants and the maintenance of uranium enrichment facilities, to the maintenance of radioactive waste disposal facilities and interim storage facilities.
Fukushima Reconstruction Project
We provide technical assistance and know-how to the decommissioning project for the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Since the March 2011 accident, our on-site service engineers have been operating and maintaining a contaminated water processing facility and conducting radiation control and environmental improvement work. We also conduct radiation control at an interim storage facility located in Fukushima Prefecture.
RI and Life Science Business
Leveraging our know-how in handling radioactive isotopes (RI), we provide an extensive range of technical assistance to research institutions and companies that operate RI research facilities. In addition, we are making inroads into the field of nuclear medicine, conducting R&D for the commercial application of an inexpensive, compact, and highly sensitive PET (positron emission tomography) brain-scanning helmet designed to diagnose dementia.
ATOX sells equipment and supplies for use in nuclear and RI facilities, such as remote manipulators, radiation-tolerant cameras, and radiation-protective gear.
ATOX co-developed with National Institute for Quantum and Radiological Science and Technology the world's first Helmet-type PET. By arranging detectors in a hemispherical shape so that they are close to the patients, this device offers a high-resolution image in spite of its small number of detectors.
