Program on the achievement of multi-benefits through the effective use of waste energy, FY 2020

The JWRF implemented the financial assistance program to achieve multi-benefits such as regional resilience improvement, regional revitalization through the recycling of resources and energy within the region, and prevention of capital outflow to outside the region. This program requires private companies to introduce facilities for waste treatment, such as highly efficient energy recovery from waste heat and waste fuel production, and to conclude an agreement with the local government on the receiving of disaster waste.

Program on the promotion of advanced resource recycling equipment installation for building of a decarbonized society

The JWRF is implementing financial assistance program on the installation of advanced resource recycling equipment for CO2 emission reduction. The purpose of this program is to reduce the emission of energy-derived CO2 in the entire recycling process of end-of-life products, as well as to quantitatively expand products that could not be recycled in the past, or to supply higher-quality recycled materials.

Activities as 3R Activity Promotion Forum
