Working with products
Semiconductor and catalytic gas sensors employ an embedded heater which is heated in contact with the gas, promoting a catalytic reaction. This process consumes power. Figaro is developing sensors with low power consumption while at the same time reducing sensor size and developing catalytic technology for reaction at lower temperatures.
Working in offices
Figaro acquired ISO14001 certification in 2006. Since this time, the company has developed mechanisms for the reduction of environmental load and ensured that these mechanisms are an integral part of the awareness of each employee. We are currently implementing ISO14001-compliant self-management for continuous improvement.
