Demonstration test of separating used household disposable diapers in Furano City using the Kurita Sams System(R)
Kurita Industries, Ltd. (Headquarters: Nakano-ku, Tokyo, President: Hirohiko Ejiri, hereinafter referred to as Kurita) is located in Furano City, Hokkaido (Mayor: Kita).
A demonstration test (hereinafter referred to as this demonstration test) regarding the separation and recycling of used disposable diapers collected from households (Taketoshi) was conducted using Kurita’s used disposable diaper separation processing device “Kurita Sams System (R)”. We would like to inform you that we have decided to do so.

Furano City promotes resource circulation and environmental impact reduction through thorough waste separation, appropriate and efficient intermediate processing, resource recycling, and final disposal, based on the basic philosophy of “Do not burn or bury.” (*1) As part of these efforts, starting in fiscal 2017, the city began recycling a portion of used disposable diapers, which are waste collected as business-related sanitary product waste, in order to reduce the amount of incineration and realize recycling. We are processing and converting it into solid fuel. In light of the aging of society, we are considering further reducing the amount of used disposable diapers incinerated and recycling them, and in order to consider ways to further reduce the amount of used disposable diapers incinerated and recycle them, we will collect used disposable diapers from general households as household sanitary product waste that is currently incinerated. We have decided to conduct this demonstration test using the Kurita Sams System (R), targeting the following.

“Kurita Sams System (R)”, which Kurita has been developing since November 2023, sterilizes, washes, and disassembles used disposable diapers, and separates them into treated water that contains plastics such as plastic bags and pulp. In addition to contributing to reducing the amount of incineration of used disposable diapers, the amount of energy used in incineration, and the reduction of CO2 emissions, this technology also allows plastics and pulp after separation to be recycled and recycled. We support recycling as recycled pulp.

This demonstration test will be conducted from early July to the end of October by Kitasei Furano Co., Ltd. (head office: Furano City, Hokkaido, Representative Director and President: Ueda
With the cooperation of Atsuyuki), we plan to carry out separate processing using the Kurita Sams System (R).

The Kurita Group proposes and provides recycling of used disposable diapers through the Kurita Sams System (R), which is aimed mainly at waste disposal companies and local governments, and is aimed at businesses as well as households. Through this, we aim to further contribute to building a recycling-oriented economy and realizing a decarbonized society by promoting the effective use of limited resources, reducing the amount of waste incinerated, improving recycling rates, and reducing CO2 emissions. I’m coming.

that’s all
