Activities for the prevention of global warming
According to the latest environmental guidelines, the JFE Kankyo Group also "promotes a recycling society" by suppressing greenhouse gas emission throughout all of society through waste reduction and the effective use of resources.
1.Contributing to the prevention of global warming by properly treating waste
JFE Kankyo recovers useful, valuable resources to the greatest extent possible from the waste it handles and circulates the recovered resources back through the recycling route.
- 1.Waste plastics, wood waste, and metal waste are recovered from construction waste. Glass, aluminum, and mercury are recovered from waste fluorescent lamps.
- 2.Waste plastics are reprocessed as plastic pellets and RPF at the Ohgishima Plant and Fukuyama RPF Plant. The reprocessed products are used as fuel or as substitute materials for steelmaking, coke, etc.
- 3.Waste plastics such as PET bottles and flexible container bags are recycled as raw materials and sold to manufacturers.
2.Energy saving and resource activities organized within the scope of our environmental management system
The ISO14001-certified plants at JFE Kankyo Group set their environmental targets voluntarily and work to reduce the use of fossil fuels and improve the recycling efficiency of waste to carry out one JFE Kankyo's key environmental missions: To save energy and resources.
3.Energy-saving measures in the realm of logistics and measures against global warming

We have also introduced a GPS driving control system to help our drivers better manage fuel costs and practice eco-driving.
4.Energy creation by electric generation
Yokohama Eco Clean and Kawasaki Eco Clean generate electricity using the exhaust heat generated by waste incineration. Both companies run their plants on electric power and sell the surplus electricity.
We have also installed solar panels on the roof of the business office of the West Japan division to generate photovoltaic power.
