We are helping to create an environmentally friendly sustainable society through aluminum recycling.
We strive to recover aluminum resources through recycling, pursue technological innovations that lead to the next generation, and contribute in the field of environmental preservation activities.
I believe that a company is a living thing. Because of this, environmental problems are important issues that we cannot ignore. It is therefore our mission to protect the earth, animals, nature, fossil fuels, forests, etc., and we must take action to avoid wasting limited metal resources, etc. Japan is an industrialized country that is practically devoid of resources, and nothing would make me happier than to be able to prevent our country from getting any poorer and pass a better Japan on to the next generation.
The self-supporting efforts of individual companies won’t be enough to achieve a sustainable society in the 21st century. Through our aluminum recycling business, we have constantly emphasized the importance of achieving mutual growth with our customers. We also strive to build good relationships with municipalities, companies, and other stakeholders in fields that include environmental planning in order to work on creating systems that will help us build a sustainable society.
In a field where resource recovery was once said to be impossible, we pursued extensive surveys, research, and development to hone our technical capabilities. Our technological development was ignored at first, but we gradually made improvements and eventually achieved aluminum resource recovery that would be useful to anyone. We will continue striving to contribute to Japan’s industrial development in the pursuit of technological innovations that lead to the next generation.
Aluminum-can recycling business
We crush used aluminum cans, remove metals such as iron and copper as well as impurities such as sand from them, peel off the coatings printed on them, and then pelletize them, all of which is based on our proprietary dry refining method. Compared to directly melting aluminum, our recycling method results in a higher primary yield.more...
