The Automotive Recycling Law requires automobile manufacturers and importers to take back and recycle three designated items from end-of-life vehicles: CFCs, airbags, and shredder residue (ASR).
We were established in January 2004 in order to properly, reliably, and efficiently take back and recycle (or destroy in the case of CFCs) CFCs and airbags, which are among the three designated items, on behalf of automobile manufacturers and importers.
We collect and manage fluorocarbons and airbags centrally from about 4,000 recycling companies nationwide on behalf of all auto manufacturers and importers.
The company has secured economies of scale in terms of logistics and information systems, reduced the recycling fees borne by vehicle owners, and facilitated business operations by establishing a central contact point with CFC collectors, CFC destroyers, auto dismantling companies, and airbag recyclers.
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 Next Generation Mobility Division and are working on projects for the appropriate recycling of lithium-ion batteries (LiB) and next-generation mobility, etc.
UNDER CONTRACT WITH THE AUTOMOBILE SHREDDER RESIDUE RECYCLING PROMOTION TEAM (ART), THE FOLLOWING OPERATIONS ARE CARRIED OUT ON BEHALF OF THE ART.
A system for taking back and recycling micro-mobiles, etc. that are not subject to the Automobile Recycling Law is being established. Details will be posted in the future.
Greetings from the President
We have been engaged in the construction, operation, and management of a joint collection and recycling system for the collection, destruction, and recycling of chlorofluorocarbons and airbags, as mandated by the Automotive Recycling Law.
In 2016, we were also entrusted with the back-office operations of the Automobile Shredder Residue (ASR) Recycling Promotion Team (ART), and have promoted the proper and smooth processing of all three of the designated collected items for automobile recycling.
On the other hand, the environment surrounding the automotive industry is undergoing a period of great 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 automotive recycling industry.
Looking at the automotive recycling industry, overseas recycling companies, including dismantling companies, are entering the Japanese market, and overseas exports of lithium-ion batteries (LiBs) are increasing. We are aware that the recycling of resources by overseas companies and on a global scale will become more and more important.
We have also begun to respond to next-generation mobility as a step toward building a new recycling system for future electrification, utilizing our strengths in the construction and operation of joint collection and recycling systems, and we will continue to contribute to automobile recycling in the future to meet the demands of the times.
In 2024, we will celebrate our 20th anniversary. We have established a new mission, vision, and values as our management policy, and we hope to achieve further growth on a new stage.
As a partner connecting all parties involved in automotive recycling, we ask for your continued understanding and cooperation in our activities.

Challenge & Innovation
In July 2002, the "Law Concerning Recycling, etc. of End-of-Life Vehicles" (Automobile Recycling Law) was promulgated to address problems in the recycling of end-of-life vehicles.
The law went into full effect in January 2005.
History of JREC
Establishment of the Japan Automobile Recycling Cooperation Organization (Jirei) by 12 Japanese automobile manufacturers and the Japan Automobile Importers Association
Japan Automobile Recycling Cooperation Organization (Jirei Kyokai) established as a limited liability intermediate corporation.
The Automobile Recycling Law comes into full effect. *1
Automobile manufacturers and importers entrust us with the handling of chlorofluorocarbons and airbags, among the three items stipulated in the law.
Changed corporate status to "General Incorporated Association" due to the repeal of the Intermediate Incorporated Association Act.
