Fujitsu moves recycling facility to state-of-the-art site

Fujitsu has significantly increased its capacity for product recycling by building a new £20million plant in Japan with the environmentally-friendly new factory capable of recycling 900,000 units a year.
This doubles the capacity of the old factory.

Japan brought in its Home Appliance Recycling Law in 2001 and since then the disposal of used consumer electric goods increased from 8.54million to 12.90million units in 2008 (an increase of 51%). In November 2009 the cumulative total of used consumer electric goods to be disposed of in a 'green' manner exceeded 100million units.

'We will continue to strive to make further contributions to our environmentally-friendly, recycling-oriented society by promoting more effective use of materials, with the home appliance recycling plant equipped with the latest facilities,' says a spokesperson for FG.

'A significant reduction of CO2 emissions has been achieved by adopting our own Fujitsu Multi air conditioning system for the internal air conditioning of the factory.'
