As part of our volunteer activities, we carry out cleaning efforts in our neighborhood, such as cutting grass and collecting trash, on a regular basis.

Zero Emissions: Separating trash → A guideline we set up in order to protect our environment.
From waste to RPF fuel
Since April 2013, based on our Marusan Environmental Statement and in order to realize the efficient use of resources, we established a recycling system in which industrial wastes are reused as fuel.
By introducing this recycling system, we made it possible for waste materials to be utilized as resources, which contributes to the reduction of CO₂ emission and to the creation of renewable energy. The RPF pellets made by Ikazaki Industry are solid forms of fuel that are environmentally friendly and create great power.
About the manufacturing system of RPF pellets
Industrial wastes that can be recycled to make RPF pellets
Paper waste, vinyl tapes, waste cotton, soft plastics, PP strapping bands, nylon, aluminum film, etc.
Keeping the temperature of air-conditioners within a certain range contributes to the protection of the environment.
Summertime: 28℃ or higher
Wintertime: 20℃ or lower
※The above set temperature ranges are subject to change depending on working conditions.
|Purpose||⇒ Reduction of electricity consumption, prevention of global warming
⇒ Achievement of quality and environmental conservation targets
4.Manufacturing non-woven fabric mulch sheets designed for organic paddy cultivation using direct seeding method
Eco and people-friendly “cotton-recycling farming”
Rice farming through an ultra-labor-saving organic farming method
What are mulch sheets?
We have developed the “fabric mulch sheet,” for a people- and eco-friendly “cotton”recycling farming method for organic paddy-field rice growing. The mulch sheets are made by laminating together two sheets of nonwoven fabric made using scrap cotton produced as by-product of our manufacturing processes with rice seeds placed in between them. They were jointly developed by Marusan and Dr. Yukito Tsuno of Tottori University.
