The environmental and recycling business
The Furukawa Electric Group utilizes its nationwide network to collect out-of-service power lines and cables and recycle them through its dismantling system and at our plastic recycling plant, which are among Japan's largest. As a result, nearly 100% of conductor materials, such as copper and aluminum are recycled, even as we expand our use of insulation materials such as recycled plastic and fuel.
