In order to establish a new-style resource-recycling system in the society while simultaneously dealing with the technological development, various issues for creating a new social system need to be considered (collection system, market development, etc.).

The Fukuoka Research Commercialization Center For Recycling Systems, as a policy-promoting research organization that comprehensively solves these problems, works as a coordinator to smoothly facilitate joint research by industry, academia, government, and the private sector, and to promote commercialization of the research results.

Introduction of the center's activities

To promote the material-recycling business, we provide support during every stage starting from consultations on joint research to commercialization and business expansion.
The material-recycling business is not only about recycling, but it consists of the 3Rs, which are also waste reduction and products reusage.
