material circulation production business

We purchase waste plastics discharged from business establishments and renewable resources circulating on the market at a valuable price, and propose matching with businesses that need them. Regardless of the form of waste plastics (thermoplastic resins) we handle, such as scraps, crushed materials, or pellets, we improve the quality of the recycled materials by utilizing advanced sorting machines and material design technology, and by working with recycled raw material compounders. We will build a material circulation scheme (closed loop) in Japan and contribute to reducing the amount of waste itself.

Why we need to circulate material

"Double the recycling of plastics" by 2030

In order to address a wide range of issues, including marine plastic waste, climate change, and strengthening waste import regulations in various countries, the government formulated the "Plastic material circulation Strategy" in May 2019. The strategy sets a milestone of "doubling the recycling rate" of plastics by 2030.

Significantly reduce the amount of waste incinerated and disposed of

The "Fifth Basic Plan for Promoting the Creation of a Recycling-Based Society (draft)," which is scheduled to be approved by the Cabinet in June 2024, also sets out the policy of "recycling discarded plastic with an emphasis on material circulation through mechanical recycling and circular chemical recycling, and significantly reducing the amount of waste plastic that is incinerated or disposed of."

Reference: "Fifth Basic Plan for Promoting the Creation of a Recycling-Based Society (Draft)" (2024, Materials from the 52nd Meeting of the Recycling-Based Society Subcommittee of the Central Environment Council, Ministry of the Environment)

Reduce the amount of plastic incinerated from 5.15 million tons to 2.78 million tons

The "Global Warming Countermeasures Plan" (approved by the Cabinet on October 22, 2021) places the greatest emphasis on "promoting the recycling of waste plastics" when it comes to reducing waste-related CO2 emissions, with a goal of reducing the amount of plastic incinerated from 5.15 million tons in fiscal 2013 to 2.78 million tons in fiscal 2030, and reducing CO2 emissions from plastic incineration from 13.78 million tons in fiscal 2013 to 6.4 million tons.
