Kansai Recycle Systems to Construct New TV Recycling Plant.
CRTs are sought to be replaced by LCD TVs in 2011. Due to the prediction of disposable CRTs, the company decided to build a second factory in Mie Prefecture following the first already built in Hirakata, Osaka. The factory will have special recycling technology encompassing the whole process from taking the TV apart to refining glass to micro pieces.
The factory also uses natural energy such as solar, biomass, micro hydraulic power, and geothermal heat. Recycling of TVs has widely penetrated in the community, with 11.6 million TVs recycled in 2005 which is up 104% compared to the previous year.
