Awards & Accomplishments[edit]

Prior to merging with Nippon Oil as well as the other companies, the Japan Energy Corporation obtained an award from Frost & Sullivan in 2008 for Excellence in Research, an award typically given to companies whom engage in new research and development tremendously contributing and paving a way for a more efficient and better gas industry. The Corporation epitomizes the relentless drive and pursuit of change as they displayed in their efforts as Frost & Sullivan coins "significant contributions to the industry in terms of adoption, change, and competitive posture."[2] is what led them to obtaining the award. Japan Energy's work that led to their win was the developing a multifaceted biosurfactent used as an remediation agent in both oil-contaminated water as well as soil. The oil remediation agent as mentioned is called JE1058BS, "JE105BS has reduced the oil content of seawater by 81.8% after a 28 day period." [3] This statement is supported by the research analysis Wai Fun Kee whom claims "Aside from being an oil spill remediation agent, JE1058BS can also be applied in the area of bioremediation of oil-contaminated soil, in-situ soil flushing, and microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR).”[4]
