Technology / Service Summary
Mixed plastic wastes which are not suitable for material recycle can be recycled as Fluff fuel by sorting and shredding operation.
・To recycle plastic wastes and reduce CO2 emission through Thermal recycling
・To solve Environmental issues and Marine pollution in developing countries which is still lower stages of development in infrastructure and waste management.
・To reduce amount of waste at landfill in Cebu, Philippines.
Fluff fuels can be produced from plastic waste by sorting and shredding operation. They are more eco-friendly than RPF (Refuse derived paper and plastic densified Fuel) because no heat treatment operation is required to produce.
・Fluff fuel emits the same amount of heat, 6500kcal up to 8000kcal/kg, as oil and coal during heating. On the other hand, Fluff consumers such as cement manufacturers or power generation companies can cut back on their CO2 emissions by around 17％ due to lower carbon content than coal.
・Using Fluff fuel recycled from a ton of plastic waste as alternative fuel of coal would enable us to reduce CO2 emission by approx. 3700kg.

Domestic operation: Annual sales of Fluff Fuel is approx. 22,000 tons.
Overseas operation: Over a period of 4 years from 2012 thru 2015 we had conducted investigation on composition and amount of solid waste generation, and feasibility study of plastic waste recycling business under the support of JICA.
The plastic waste recycling plant of which the daily capacity is around 75 tons was established in May 2017.
