A spokesperson for the Osaka-based Sanyo said the two companies will cooperate in assessing whether soil and water pollution had occurred around factories. Sanyo will perform the initial assessment and the Canadian company will devise programmes for cleaning up toxic substances, the spokesman pointed out.
