Amica Himawari Co., Ltd.

Patent for the recycling of aluminum-coated films

Our company is engaged in the purchase, processing, and sale of unwanted plastics. We have developed a unique technique for recycling composite films, aluminum-coated films, and mixed plastics that used to be disposed of by landfilling and incineration. Aluminum-coated films used to be difficult to reuse but can now be recycled by mixing thermoplastic resins and crushing and heating them together. We acquired a patent for this film recycling technology. In the medium term, we are considering expanding business to Asia.


Other presentation

[Company strength]
Our advantage is a system for reducing the consumption of natural resources and minimizing the burden on the environment. Composite films, aluminum-coated films, and mixed plastics used to be disposed of by landfilling and incineration because they could not be recycled by the conventional method. Our unique concept enables us to recycle them into raw materials. We tackle and solve current issues. This approach is our advantage.

[Business description]
We are a relatively new company established in 2007. Global environmental conservation and making effective use of resources is an urgent issue. We purchase and process unwanted plastics, and sell recycled products. Items are discarded throughout the industrial activities that support our affluent lives. Unless discharged after appropriate treatment, such items cause environmental destruction and damage to society. The conventional recycling method recycles the same plastics only. Composite films, aluminum-coated films, and mixed plastics used to be landfilled and incinerated because they could not be recycled. We are committed to the production of raw materials by recycling based on a unique concept. We have succeeded in producing complete raw materials for eco pallets, planting pots, and returnable containers. We will actively strive to manufacture more products by recycling.

Purchase, processing, and sales of plastics

[Strength of products/technologies]
Aluminum-coated multilayer films are widely used for food packaging. These films used to be disposed of as industrial waste without being recycled because they are difficult to reuse. We enable such aluminum-coated films to be reused by mixing different thermoplastic resins and crushing and heating them together (registered patent No. 5313705 “Technology for reusing films that have metal films”). Our product and technical advantage are the creativity to meet diverse demands.

[Representative's message]
In the current age where resources are limited, effective recycling is needed and there are growing expectations for recycling. Since its establishment in 2007, our company has been engaged in the recycling of plastics. All of our staff are committed to the protection of the global environment and the reuse of resources. We will keep taking up new challenges for the new age to meet the expectations of customers.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We will actively participate in exhibitions and trade fairs held by governmental agencies, public support organizations, and financial institutions. While recognizing existing market needs, we will also actively propose new uses. We will acquire new patents and conduct joint research by utilizing the support system of a local public support organization. We will expand recycling from plastics to other fields to contribute to the effective use of resources in industry. We will keep making efforts to expand our sales channels to developing countries in Asia in the medium term.

[Market share/Ranking]
We do not have detailed data, but our delivery record suggests we have a substantial market share.
