One of the problems facing modern society is the contamination of soil and groundwater. Kurita provides consistent services ranging from contamination surveys to purification, applying the technologies and expertise Kurita has cultivated in water treatment. The significant advantage of Kurita’s services come from its approach to the asset value of land as well as purification. The contamination of soil and groundwater might even lower the corporate value of a company that owns the land. If contamination is confirmed, Kurita reduces the risk that the land price may fall as a result of contaminated soil and groundwater after quantifying the risk by employing the best method to calculate the purification costs and period. It then provides a wide range of solution services that look at the soil contamination risk from the economic perspective to support the effective use of land after purification, such as by diagnosing the soil contamination risk related to real estate transactions and formulating a selling scheme and a post-purification redevelopment plan. The Kurita Group possesses the experience, technologies, and expertise backed by a strong track record of surveys and purification work in more than 4,000 cases. In addition, Land Solution Inc., a specialty company of the Group that solves difficult issues related to soil and groundwater contamination from the perspective of liquidating and utilizing the land, meets a variety of customer needs, such as risk hedging against soil and groundwater contamination, establishing a research fund that gives financial support, the purchase of the contaminated land, and the guarantee of purification costs.
Capitalizing on these strengths, Kurita seeks to maximize the asset value of customers’ land by not only conducting surveys and purification work, but also hedging the contamination risk and offering support for the effective use of the remediated safe land and its sale.
