About Japan Auto Recycling Partnership

Automobile Recycling Law requires automobile companies and importers to collect and recycle three designated items from ELV: CFCs, airbags, and Automobile Shredder Residue (ASR).

We were established in January 2004 in order to properly, reliably, and efficiently collect and recycle (or destroy in the case of CFCs) CFCs and airbags, which are among the three designated items, commissioned by automobile companies and importers.

We collect and manage CFCs and airbags centrally from about 4,000 recycling companies nationwide on behalf of all automobile companies and importers.

We have streamlined operations by securing economies of scale in terms of logistics and information systems, reducing vehicle owners' recycling fees, and facilitated business operations by establishing a central contact point with CFC recovery operators, CFC destruction operators, dismantling operators, and airbag recycling operators.

In addition, since fiscal year 2016, we have been entrusted by the Automobile Shredder Residue Recycling Promotion Team (ART) with back-office operations related to ASR.

Furthermore, in recent years, in response to changes in the environment surrounding the automotive society, we have established the advanced mobility department and are working on projects for the appropriate recycling of lithium-ion batteries (LiB) and advanced mobility, etc.

Massage from the President

We have been engaged in constructing, operating, and managing a joint collection and recycling system for the collection, destruction, and recycling of CFCs and airbags, as mandated by the Automobile Recycling Law for automobile manufacturers and others.
In 2016, we were also entrusted with the back-office operations of the Automobile Shredder Residue (ASR) Recycling Promotion Team (ART). And we have promoted the proper and smooth processing of all three designated parts for recovery for ELV recycling.
On the other hand, the environment surrounding the automotive industry is undergoing significant change.
The emergence of new mobility technologies with the keyword "CASE" and the further increase in awareness of environmental issues, such as Carbon Neutrality and electrification, are expected to have no small impact on the ELV recycling industry.
Looking at the ELV recycling industry, overseas recycling companies, including dismantling companies, are entering the Japanese market, and overseas lithium-ion batteries (LiBs) exports are increasing. We know that we need to work on ELV recycling not only on a domestic scale considering Japanese business operators but also on a global scale considering foreign companies.

We have also begun responding to advanced mobility as a step toward building a new recycling system for future electrification, utilizing our strengths in constructing and operating joint collection and recycling systems. We will continue to contributing to ELV recycling in the future to meet the demands of the times.

We will celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2024. As our management policy, we have established a new mission, vision, and values, and we hope to achieve further growth on a new stage.

As a partner connecting all parties involved in ELV recycling, we ask for your continued understanding and cooperation in our activities.
