Creating a comfortable dietary life through food tray containers

Recycling Effect

Results of the Recycling Business

Since its launch in 1990, FPCO method recycling has achieved increasingly significant results year after year.
In 1992, there were 1,660 used container collection points, and by 2017 this number had grown to 9,147, which collection volume increasing almost tenfold over this period.
Collecting used containers and using them as recycled materials produces various benefits.
The immeasurable spillover effects include reduced oil consumption as a natural resource serving as a raw material in the manufacturing process, and reduced waste generation thanks to the recycling of resources.
For preventing the exhaustion of natural resources and for preserving the global environment, FP Corporation is pushing ahead with the use of terrestrial resources through the recycling business.

CO₂ Emissions Reduction Effect

CO₂ Emissions Reduction Effect

The calculation of the environmental impacts of the processes from the production of food tray materials to disposal and recycling confirms that CO₂ emissions from Eco Tray® and the Eco APET® are 30% lower than those from trays that are newly produced from crude oil.
The use of these recycled containers resulted in CO₂ emissions being reduced by 113,000 tons in FY2017.
