SUNSTAR SMART CENTRE

Sunstar Smart is SJF’s Center for Research and Development (R & D) that develop Industry 4.0 technology in the fields of agriculture, industrial bamboo, environmental protection, energy and automation. Sunstar Smart cooperates with Research institutes and partners from Japan, Canada, Germany and United States to research and develop innovative technologies that fundamentally change the important industries: agriculture, manufaturing, energy ect. toward improving production efficiency, saving natural resource, and improving the health of human and Earth.

1. FRESS KEEPING PRESERVATION TECHNOLOGY

Vietnam has been experiencing the problem of “bumper crops – price falls” in agricultural production for many years. This is because there is no effective food preservation solution to help prolong the distribution period of agricultural products.

SJF owns the Point Warp Fresh Keeping System technology, which was invented by Yoshiro Komiyama, vice chairman of the SJF. This is among the most advanced preservation technology in the world, which has been widely used in Japan for 15 years. This solution can keep food fresh for 3 to 6 months without using preservatives.

This technology helps food producers, restaurants, shops, supermarkets and households keep their food fresh longer, reducing food waste.

The essence of this technology is the use of electromagnetic fields to preserve food at low temperatures from -5 to 0oC (for meat, fish ..) and from 0 to 3oC (for vegetables and fruits). The superiority of this technology is to keep the food from freezing so that it remains intact in shape, taste and freshness.

2. ENVIRONMENTAL TREATMENT TECHNOLOGY 

WTS is a microbiological solution of Sunstar Lacto Japan used for treatment of organic waste, livestock environment and waste water in food processing and domestic sewage. This product is also used for treating activated sludge, organic wastes in and beneath the pond bottom, aquaculture ponds to improve the aquaculture environment, heping aquaculture growing faster.

Japan’s ecoparadise P-Gro biotech product can clean the soil and improve soil fertility, treat and cleanse chemicals, and pesticide residues in the soil environment, water and agricultural products. P-Gro is also used as a biological cleanser, replacing household chemical soap. This product was awarded the “Ecological Environment Products” by the Government of Singapore in 2013.

3. AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGY FOR FACTORIES

The majority of foreign investors investing in Vietnam is due to cheap labor costs. However, Vietnam is losing this advantage due to: (1) Labor productivity of Vietnamese workers is very low (2) The wage level is increasing rapidly like China, (3) Developed countries are investing heavily in automation technology to reduce the number of workers in the factories to increase productivity. As a result, Vietnam factories will soon not be able to compete internationally unless they actively making change.

Therefore, the modernization of factories, especially automation through optimization of production lines and automation by robots, is crucial for Vietnamese enterprises to exist. Sunstar Smart research the production technology of the 4th technology revolution to meet this demand.

From the fourth quarter of 2017, some Sunstar Smart robot arms will be launched, applied first in the SJF’s factories, and then deployed in other manufactures across Vietnam.
