Low-concentration PCB

Low-concentration PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl) waste is detoxified by incineration at Yokohama Eco Clean (kiln/stoker type furnace).

  1. 1.Low-concentration PCB waste is completely burnt and detoxified at high temperatures of 850℃ or more.
  2. 2.Low-concentration PCB is collected and transported for detoxifying waste treatment.
  3. 3.Contributing to low-concentration PCB detoxification treatment in the Tokyo metropolitan area

Yokohama Eco Clean plant

Low-concentration PCB waste is a generic name for electronic components contaminated by small amounts of PCB unintentionally mixed in (PCB concentration: 5,000ppm or less).

There are three types: low-concentration PCB waste oil, contaminated objects, and materials to be recycled. Our company successfully completed two PCB detoxification verification tests to treat these items safely and gained certification as a detoxification disposal facility by the Minister of the Environment based on the Waste Disposal and Public Cleansing Act (December 24, 2013).

The waste oil is suctioned into a secondary combustion chamber using a dedicated waste oil tank and transfer line. Contaminated solid objects and materials to be recycled are directly charged in a kiln by a charging device within a sealed container.

Each item is detoxified by complete incineration at a high temperature of 850℃ for two seconds or longer. J&T Recycling will continue to treat low-concentration PCB for the Tokyo Metropolitan Area at its plants located in the coastal industrial zone of Yokohama city.
