AD REM to build largest facility for plastic recycling in Japan
The company Planic is a joint venture between Toyota Tsusho, Veolia Japan and Kojima Sangyo and is to be Japan’s largest recycled plastic processing company. They collect mixed plastics from various sources and sort them to recycle them back into plastic raw materials.
With the new facility, PLANIC reacts to an increasing plastic pollution problem in Japan. Most of the waste plastic in Japan is now being incinerated, landfilled or sent overseas. Japan’s government launched the 3R’s campaign ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’, which aims to turn this around and promotes more domestic plastic recycling.
Superior technology for low cost, high quality plastic recycling
The key to obtaining more plastic recycling lies in using cheap and efficient processes to turn it into a profitable, sustainable business. With over 20 years of experience in recycling plastics from WEEE (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment) and ASR (Automotive Shredder Residues), Galloo Plastics has proven to be the perfect partner for this. Licensed under the company Ad Rem, the technology for cheap and efficient sorting of various types of plastics is readily available on the market.
The patented Galloo Plastics separation technology has already proven its worth. Galloo’s recycled plastic meets all required standards as demanded by the automotive industry, automatically qualifying it for a wide array of other possible applications. More importantly, this is being achieved for a cost that is lower than that of petroleum plastic production.
PLANIC’s new plastic recycling facility will process about 40.000 metric tons per year of plastic material coming from various sources such as automobiles, home appliances, palettes and containers, and packaging materials from distribution centers and shopping centers. The plant will be located in Omaezaki City, Shizuoka Prefecture and will be fully operational by mid-2022.
