Adamant Namiki’s Initiative for SDGs-- Adamant Namiki Registers Patented Technologies to SDGs-Support Database of U.N.

   Last Modified:    Published: 2022/01

In December 2021, Adamant Namiki Precision Jewel Co., Ltd. registered its patented technologies to an online database operated by the United Nations’ specialized agency, a step to shore up international efforts to achieve sustainable development goals for our planet.

Registration Patented Technologies to SDGs-Support Database of U.N.

Adamant Namiki has listed 19 patented technologies related to the fields of greenhouse gas reduction and clean energy development as well as solutions to aging and shrinking workforce.

In 2013, World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the U.N. agency, launched a platform that connects providers and seekers of environmentally-friendly technologies. The database of the platform dubbed as WIPO GREEN carries more than 120,000 technologies and demands from users worldwide as of January 2022. WIPO GREEN helps to promote innovations of environmentally-friendly technologies through global collaborations and business matchings and accelerate transfers and diffusions of such technologies.

Adamant Namiki manufactures a large number of products in four fields: the development of industrial jewel material such as diamond and sapphire, optical communication parts, small-sized motors and medical equipment. The company processes industrial jewels in integrated productions that feature “cutting, grinding and polishing” and uses them as bases to make the other main products. It has registered some of its patented technologies to WIPO GREEN. Adamant Namiki is making efforts to create new values and advance products which can contribute to achieve SDGs by cooperating with customers and joint development partners

SDGs refer to a set of 17 global goals to achieve a sustainable and better world during a period from 2016 and 2030. The objectives were endorsed by the United Nations and its 193 member countries.

This time, Adamant Namiki focused on two of the goals-the 7th and the 9th of the SDGs - and registered the 19 patented technologies. 

Goal 7: to ensure access to affordable, reliable and sustainable and modern energy for all – reducing greenhouse gas emission, manufacturing parts to contribute to create clean energy, energy-saving activities  

Goal 9: to build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation – providing solutions to aging and shrinking workforce

Related technologies (Goal 7)

Optical communication devices (optical connection, optical fiber array) Contribute to reduce electric power consumption of remote networks (high efficiency, large capacity data transmission)
Current sensor Clean energy (clean power electricity) high precision measurement
Low power consumption method -> energy consumption reduction (carbon dioxide emission reduction)
Crystal (GaN, Ga2O3) Power semiconductor: low power consumption -> energy saving (carbon dioxide emission reduction)
Luminous efficiency improvement -> energy consumption reduction (carbon dioxide emission reduction)
Sapphire substrate LED (low power consumption light) -> energy consumption reduction (carbon dioxide emission reduction)
Diamond substrate Power electronics: low power consumption, downsizing -> energy saving (carbon dioxide emission reduction)
Power generation device Reduction of fossil energy usage through dissemination of clean energy (carbon dioxide emission reduction)
Batteryless -> enhancing easy installation->energy saving (carbon dioxide emission reduction)
Robot hands Unelectrified grips -> energy consumption reduction (carbon dioxide emission reduction)
Industrial pumps, Diaphragm pumps Reduction of fossil energy usage through dissemination of clean energy (fuel cell) (carbon dioxide emission reduction)
Small Motors Low voltage drive (= high-efficiency motor) -> energy consumption reduction (carbon dioxide emission reduction)
Motor units
(Unelectrified lock system, clutch)
Holding unelectrified positions by dyNALOX -> energy consumption reduction (carbon dioxide emission reduction)

Related technologies (Goal 9)
