PET REFINE TECHNOLOGY CO.,LTD (President and CEO: Daigo Iga; hereinafter "PET Refine Technology"), a group company of JEPLAN Corporation, and Ube City (Mayor: Keiji Shinozaki) in Yamaguchi Prefecture have started collaboration in the horizontal PET bottle recycling business.

Ube City will use its proprietary chemical recycling technology to recycle used PET bottles collected by Ube City into raw materials of the same quality as petroleum-derived PET resin to achieve horizontal PET bottle recycling (bottle-to-bottle), thereby reusing limited resources, reducing the use of new petroleum resources, and reducing CO2 emissions. 

In addition, we will promote the creation of a recycling-oriented society through environmental education for children, who are the bearers of the future, as well as activities aimed at raising public awareness.

The JEPLAN Group will continue to promote collaboration with domestic and overseas partners to realize its corporate philosophy of "bringing everything into circulation," and the entire group will work together to drive the circular economy.
