1. It started 13 years ago
We established the "Tomizawa Fund" in 2007 and started a business.
However, the year after the establishment, the financial crisis provided an opportunity to transform the business, and I was thinking about how to restart it.
At that time, I visited Asian countries for the first time in a long time since I was a student.
A large number of cars and motorcycles ran around the city, and when I saw the stagnant sky, I was shocked by the transformation.
It definitely causes health problems such as asthma in children, and I thought, "If nothing is done, there will be not only the city but aloso the global environment will only deteriorate ".
Governments and automakers in each country are working to reduce emissions by developing new cars, but they have not taken effective solutions against sold cars that run every day.
Furthermore, in developing countries, the quality of gasoline is poor and it is difficult to buy expensive genuine parts, so maintenance will be performed with inexpensive parts. Then the engine combustion gets worse and the exhaust gas just increases.
2. Finally to the development of "AdPower"
Therefore, I started research and development with the thought, "Is there a breakthrough solution to reduce exhaust gas for automobiles around the world?"
My inexperienced in the automobile industry, on the other hnad, made it possible to think from various perspectives without being bound by preconceived ideas.
This is because, until now, in order to reduce exhaust gas, it was common knowledge to collect exhaust gas after combustion in the engine combustion chamber with a DPF (diesel particulate filter). However, the high cost of the equipment and the need for work at automobile repair garage to install it have been major obstacles to its widespread use, especially in developing countries.
Therefore, I changed my mind and thought that it might be possible to promote combustion and reduce the amount of exhaust gas emitted, and started research on after-parts that improve engine combustion.
Until we achieved at the basic technology of AdPower, we investigated the advantages of various raw materials, and it was a "continuous trial and error" such as how to install and the shape of the product.
For example, the fiberglass used in the third layer is made using other materials, and a running test, engine output test, exhaust gas check ... This process is repeated every time the raw material or composition is changed.
These days have been going on for over a year.
3. Gradually recognize "AdPower"
Since then, as a result of steadily accumulating the "AdPower movement", it has gradually come to be recognized.
Finally, two years later, in 2017, I got the long-sought patent ↓ ↓ ↓
Furthermore, we were adopted the 2017 manufacturing subsidy, it was selected as one of the 10 achievement casebooks ↓ ↓ ↓
4. AdPower breaks common sense
Of course, obtaining a patent is not our goal. To reduce emissions around the world, we must take steps for each and every car in the world that is already running. And now the world is clearly experiencing air pollution and global warming, and there is no waiting.
With AdPower, the installation is very easy and low cost. I am convinced that this small seal-laminate is a reasonable way to recover engine performance, reduce emissions by 20-50% and prevent global warming.
The current goal is "to reduce the world's exhaust gas and contribute to the long life of my car." Tomizawa & Co., Ltd. will continue its efforts to make it happen.
Please look forward to the big innovation of cars created by Tomizawa & Co., Ltd.
