Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors

About environmentally-compliant products

We engage in international initiatives for environmental load substance reduction and abide by international regulations (RoHS Directive, ELV Directive, etc.) as part of efforts to develop and commercialize products with a low environmental load. In accordance with revisions to the RoHS Directive (2011/65/EU), four new substances were added to the scope of applicability. As a result, as of July 2019, 10 substances are applicable to regulations. We have already reviewed our external sleeve materials and completed measures to ensure compliance.

RoHS2 compliance Compliance with 2011/65/EU and said revisions (2015/863/EU, etc.)
ELV compliance Compliance with 2000/53/EC and said revisions (2016/774/EU, etc.)
