Features of fluorescent lamp recycling
- 1.Safely collecting the harmful substance mercury
The mercury contained in fluorescent lamps is a harmful substance stored at a high saturated vapor pressure. If a lamp is shattered or broken, the toxic vapor may contaminate the air. JFE Kankyo collects shipments of fluorescent lamps without breaking them and safely recovers the mercury.
- 2.Seeking a recycling system on the forefront
With improvement of recycling technology, we can now separately collect and recycle every component and material making up a fluorescent lamp, including the mercury, fluorescent powder, steel, glass, aluminum, and various plastics.
- 3.The largest fluorescent lamp recycling plant in Japan
The annual processing capacity of our fluorescent lamp recycling plant is 21,000 tons. This makes it Japan's largest facility dedicated to the collection and recycling of used fluorescent lamps from around the country.
