Message from the CEO
To aim for the development of a recycling-oriented society
The Company was established in 1976 as a company specializing in the recycling of rechargeable batteries in metal, based on the parent company Fuyo Metal Co., Ltd., which expands a business of recycling rare metals.
At the time of its establishment, while society was in a period of high economic growth, environmental problems due to mass production and mass consumption were becoming serious.
Under these situations, we have established a technology to separate and extract cadmium, which has a high environmental burden, from “nickel / cadmium batteries”, which were representative of rechargeable batteries at the time. Then, we have started a business to recycle used rechargeable batteries as useful metal raw materials instead of disposing them.
Since then, with the technological innovation of rechargeable batteries represented by the birth of nickel-metal hydride batteries and lithium-ion batteries, we have developed metal recycling technology, and now can recycle almost all major rechargeable batteries.
In the future, rechargeable batteries will increasingly play a key role in society with the spread of mobile devices and EV cars.
We will continue to contribute to the development of a recycling-oriented society by the recycling of used rechargeable batteries.
We pursue harmony between people, resources and the environment and continue to contribute to the development of society with technology and creativity.
