About the LiB Joint Collection System

The need to establish a safety net for properly disposing of lithium-ion batteries (LiBs) used in hybrid vehicles and EVs was presented at a joint working group meeting of the Automotive Recycling Law Council in 2015. In response, the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) supported establishing a collection and recycling system, with the Japan Auto Recycling Partnership (JARP) as the contact point, which has been in operation since October 2018.

The LiB joint collection system uses the following flow for collection.

(1) Discharge business operators request LiB pickup from JARP via the "Pickup Request System".
(2) A transportation company commissioned by JARP will visit the site to collect the LiBs.
(3) Discharge business operators deliver the LiBs to the carrier in the form specified in the automobile manufacturer's dismantling manual, etc.
  *For details of the "Collection Standards" for delivering LiBs, please refer to the "Collection Standards" and the "LiB Pickup Request Manual."
(4) LiBs delivered by the discharge business operators will be appropriately disposed of by a disposal business operator entrusted by JARP.

About the wide-area certification system

The wide-area certification system is a unique system stipulated in Article 9-9 and Article 15-4-3 of the Wastes Disposal and Public Cleansing Act, under which the Minister of the Environment certifies those who conduct wide-area treatment that contributes to reducing waste and ensuring its proper disposal, and for these persons, a license by local government for waste disposal business is not required. JARP has been certified under the wide-area certification system on January 30, 2018.
