PET REFINE TECHNOLOGY CO.,LTD (President and CEO: Daigo Iga, hereinafter "PET Refine Technology"), a group company of JEPLAN Corporation, has signed a contract with Fukuoka City (Mayor: Soichiro Takashima) in Fukuoka Prefecture for PET bottle recycling for Bottle to Bottle Fukuoka City, Fukuoka Prefecture (Mayor: Soichiro Takashima) for bottle-to-bottle PET bottle recycling.

Fukuoka City has set a challenge goal of "virtually zero greenhouse gas emissions in FY2040" in order to realize a decarbonized society, and various efforts are underway to achieve a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in FY2030, which is 46% less than the national target for FY 2013.

Since FY2022, a trial horizontal recycling of PET bottles (bottle-to-bottle) has been conducted, and now PET Refine Technology will participate in an initiative to chemically recycle half of the used PET bottles collected by Fukuoka City as a verification of the recycling method.

By recycling used PET bottles collected by Fukuoka City into raw materials of the same quality as petroleum-derived PET resin using PET Refine Technology's proprietary chemical recycling technology, we will achieve horizontal recycling of PET bottles (bottle-to-bottle), thereby reusing limited resources, reducing the use of new petroleum resources, and reducing CO2 emissions. 

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.
