Japan's forests are a rich source of wood materials used to build houses and other wooden structures. Plus, thinned timber and wood scraps can be converted into fuel to replace petroleum. With no CO2 emissions, the planet stays in good shape. As overcrowded stands are thinned, forests become healthier. Local use of local timber creates jobs, so area residents become better off. Our company is based in Kochi, a prefecture in Western Japan with the highest proportion of forested land in the country. This business encourages the use of wood pellets as a source of fuel and is our way of bringing benefits to local economies and communities as a member of global society. Tosatech Co., Ltd. is a pioneer in pelletizers―wood pellet-making machines―for introducing wood-based biomass fuel.
