Attempting to Global Warming

J&T Recycling Group has established and operates "Global Warming Countermeasures Conference" as an organizational work on energy conservation and greenhouse gas reduction in whole group. This conference has attempted to reduce greenhouse gas emissions according to the industrial targets of the National Federation of Industrial Waste Management Associations.Since FY2012, the conference has created mid-to-long-term plan based on the Act on the Rational Use of Energy and a global warming countermeasure plan based on Yokohama and Kawasaki City ordinances (business offices in Yokohama and Kawasaki)

J&T Recycling Group also sets "Promoting Sustainable Society" in one of our environmental policies. We contribute to reduction of Greenhouse gas emission through reducing and recycling of wastes and use them as resources.

1. Contributing to the prevention of global warming by properly treating waste


J&T collects useful resources from the received waste as much as possible and returns them to the recycling route.

  1. 1.Collecting materials
    from Construction Waste
    Plastics, wood, scrap metals
    from Fluorescent Lumps
    Glass, aluminum, mercury
  2. 2.Waste plastics are reprocessed as plastic pellets and RPF at the Ogishima Plant and Fukuyama RPF Plant.
    The reprocessed products are used as fuel or as substitute materials for steelmaking, coke, etc.
  3. 3.Waste plastics such as used PET bottles and used flexible container bags are recycled as raw materials and sold to manufacturers.

2. Saving Energy and Resources with Environmental Management System

ISO14001 Certified Plants in J&T Recycling Group set each environmental targets. Each plants attempt to reduce fossil fuel usage and to increase recycling ratio.

3. Energy Saving and Anti Global Warming activity in Logistics

CNG vehicle (4 t arm roll truck)

J&T Recycling promotes the transportation of waste using low-emission vehicles, and has already introduced four CNG vehicles running on natural gas fuel with low carbon dioxide emission.
We have also introduced a GPS driving control system to help our drivers better manage fuel costs and practice eco-driving.

4. Waste To Energy

Yokohama Eco Clean and Kawasaki Eco Clean create electricity by the waste heat generated in incinerators. Electricity is used for factory operations, and the surplus is sold. Also, both facilities run their plants with those electricity and sell the surplus electricity. In addition, West Japan Sector installed solar panels on the office roof to generate their own using power.
