Proper Treatment of End-of-Life Vehicles

The policy here at 3-R (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) is to provide a "2-ECO" (Economy and Ecology) approach to dismantling of our End-of-Life Vehicles (ELV). It is very important to our mission that we develop good ecologically safe procedures to keep everyone, and the environment safe. So, what is the proper treatment of our ELV? Using specific guide lines which is enforced by our Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare in 1995, the policy in the End-of-Life Vehicle Recycling Law, we use our 15 years of experience in dismantling each ELV in the following ways:
1, We remove all liquids, CFC & HFC, and the battery for the safety of our workers.
2, We store/manage reusable parts using safely methods as to not harm the environment.
3, We try hard to reuse parts from End-of-Life Vehicle as much as possible.
4, We recycle the rest of the End-of-Life Vehicle as material in a different way.
5, We deliver the rest of (4) to a Shredder and Iron manufacturing company who is certified by the government to handle industrial waste.
6, Finally, we disable the air bag to make the End-of-Life Vehicles safe.
An automobile has many kinds of liquids - fuel, engine oil, transmission oil, brake fluid , LLC, washer fluid, etc …. We are very careful not to allow those liquids to spill into underground areas through the surface, and we make sure no liquids are left in End-of-Life Vehicles. To do this we built a liquid removal stand for efficiency and safety. We enclosed the stand by building a roof overhead, pouring concrete for the floor, and designed a vacuum line for each liquid. Now all of those liquids are completely sucked out of the ELV and stored directly in an underground tank. While we are removing all the liquids, we also remove the Battery and CFC & HFC at the same time. We check the condition of the battery with our tester so we can recover and sell the good conditioned Battery as a Battery with warranty. As for the CFC & HFC, we collect them with a reserve machine into a 20 liter tank and deliver them to a Fluorocarbons Destruction Operator who has been approved and certified through the ELV Recycling Laws. We are confident that these procedures are the proper treatment for our End-of-Life Vehicles. We believe the success of our proper treatment of End-of-Life Vehicles program will keep growing as we continue to reuse the used parts, continue to carefully sort the many different types of metal, and continue our recycling program. The evolution of Proper Treatment of End-of-Life Vehicles is directly linked to the corporate growth of 3R Corporation. In the near future, we hope we can update you on the progress and evolution of the Proper Treatment of End-of-Life Vehicles on this web-site.

ECO

As part of our effort to reduce electrical consumption, we grow our own "Green Curtain" every summer. A Green Curtain is a natural shade barrier over the outside of the building's window created by growing climbing plants. Thanks to the Green Curtain's ability to block out the direct rays of the strong summer sun, it helps prevent the inside room temperature from rising. 3R is located in the northern part of Saitama prefecture, which is very close to the hottest city in Japan, Kumagaya-city. We try to keep cool, even on the hottest summer day in an environmentally friendly way.
Here are some pictures from 2010.
