NGK SPARK PLUG was awarded the "CEAA" for Environmental Achievement by ACerS

Nagoya, May 24, 2016 ―NGK SPARK PLUG CO., LTD. (Chairman, President and CEO: Shinichi Odo, Headquarters: Nagoya, hereafter NGK SPARK PLUG) are pleased to announce that we have won the Corporate Environmental Achievement Award (CEAA) 2016 from the American Ceramic Society (AcerS) for the contribution of our zirconia oxygen sensor (NTK oxygen sensor) to the environment by helping to improve exhaust gas purification and fuel economy of vehicle.

NTK oxygen sensors, which have excellent output stability and long-life durability, have played an important role in the vehicle emission purification system, and contributed to the conversion of exhaust gas to “Clean Air”.
