Recently the issue of "Sick House Syndrome" has arisen, and there is a greater awareness of the materials used in construction. If one inhales fumes from paint, new building materials and adhesives, one can get sick. Mold and housemites are also a factor in this illness.
In the construction industry, it is possible to enhance the functionality of materials though adding EM•1® or EM-X® ceramic products. The building's durability will be improved, and in actual construction it's been shown that the damage caused by adhesives and organic solvents can be reduced. At present EM•1® and EM-X® ceramics are being used in concrete in actual construction, and numerous buildings and houses have been completed implementing the use of EM Technology™ in construction materials right from the design. The best example of this is our EM Wellness Center in Okinawa, Japan. Instead of tearing down the decrepit building, the concrete building materials were revitalized through the use of EM Technology™, and the Center itself has successfully become a leading architectural model.
