Actions at Plants

Pellet Energy Conservation Project

 Recycling of remnants

Recycling of remnants

FPCO has been recycling remnants generated from the process of manufacturing food trays and containers. However, it has had no working group that specializes solely in this process.
In FY2013, "Pellet Energy Conservation Project" was launched with the participation of personnel at our 14 plants around the country from which remnants are generated.
Aimed at sharing information, this project is mainly expected to reduce electric power consumption.

Zero Emissions and Recycling of Expendable Supplies

We engage in zero emission activities with a view to fulfilling a target for the final disposal rate of industrial waste from production plants set at less than 1%.
We monitor the treatment method and the final disposal quantity in close communication with industrial waste treatment operators.
In addition, we recycle as many remnants from the manufacturing process and packing materials for used trays as possible.

Quality Management at Plants

FPCO’s Kasaoka, Kanto Shimodate and Kinki Kameoka Plants have acquired certification for the ISO 9001 international standard on quality management systems.
Our PDCA-style management has produced positive effects such as the clarification of responsibility and authority in plants, the standardization of operations, enrichment in education and training, and the enhancement of production technologies.

Implementation of Monozukuri Project

 Skill Workshop Graduate Badge

Skill Workshop Graduate Badge

FPCO’s production function continues to implement the Monozukuri Project, aimed at increasing productivity.
Plant staff all over the country gather twice a year to present the results of their efforts to increase work efficiency.
Many different measures have been proposed from this project, including the management of three fixed factors,
i.e. ensuring that fixed items are placed at fixed positions in fixed quantities, evaluation of skill levels and the creation of active spaces.
In addition, we organize a skill workshop twice a year. It is aimed at building up the skills of the operators working on the shop floors.
This skill workshop initiative constitutes part of the Monozukuri Project.
Those who have completed the training program are given a badge that is ranked according to the number of programs they have completed and the type of program taken.
It is part of the efforts to reduce environmental impacts based on encouraging actions for increasing operational efficiency.

Visualization of Plant Data and Replacement of Equipment

Visualization is very important for using utilities in production plants without waste.
We check the figures that reflect the use of utilities at 10- and 30-minute time slots and, for longer periods, on a monthly basis.
We replace facilities and devices with new ones as appropriate in order to reduce CO2 emissions that have become clear as a result of visualization.
