Bemberg Plant

In 1931, Asahi Kasei began operation of the Bemberg Plant in Nobeoka, Miyazaki Prefecture, and since then the plant has continued running in harmony with its rich natural surroundings.
As the only cupra fiber manufacturer in the world, we are making constant efforts to enhance quality, while respecting the natural environment by implementing numerous ingenious solutions at production facilities to lower the environmental impact.
