 Recipients of VEC's Recycling Support Subsidy Determined

  As specific measures to “Our Vision for PVC Recycling,” we have been inviting companies to apply to our recycling subsidy system again. Under the advice from the evaluation board, we decided at the administrative board level to support and co-sponsor the below project.

“Development of Material Recycling Technology for Compound Materials,
Including PVC Tarpaulin and Plastic Leather”
KaniePropane Co., ltd. (Kanie-cho, Ama-gun, Aichi prefecture)

Content: The research involves development of technology for promoting material recycling. For instance, the chips and cuttings coming out of the processing plants of tarpaulins, plastic leathers, etc. are compound materials, which are consisted of PVC and fabrics. By separating them into PVC and other materials, and using the recycled PVC as a raw material is one of the material recycling technology.

  We expect that the research and development would successfully spread PVC recycling.
