Environment Management Program
In addition to spearheading our environment friendly expansion plans, our Environment Section coordinates various projects with internal departments under an Environment Management Program. The company’s most significant environmental contribution is centered on diffusing dust emissions, which to a large degree are the results of technology utilized in the 1970’s. The revamping of our dust collection system in our existing facilities is within the scope of these projects.
As a part of waste management, JAFCO continues to study various options to re-using / re-cycling its production waste. Palletizing DR product dust and EF dust, recycling of Refractory bricks and extracting iron from slag are some of the programs under progress. This project may be able to contribute to solving or reducing a major community waste problem.
