Canon opens Eco Technology Park

Canon opens Eco Technology Park

February 22, 2018

Canon Inc. and Canon Ecology Industry Inc. announced the opening of the Canon Eco Technology Park as a focal point of the environmental activities of the Canon Group.

The Canon Eco Technology Park, which according to the OEM strives to reduce waste and make effective use of limited resources, comprises a showroom and a cutting-edge plant pursuing further resource efficiency through re-use and recycling.

According to Canon, the facility aims to maximise resource efficiency through such initiatives to enable the repeated re-use of used products like the Canon Automated Recycling System for Toner Cartridges* (CARS-T), Canon’s ‘Closed-loop’ recycling that collects and re-uses plastic extracted from used toner cartridges as the raw material for new toner cartridges and the Canon Automated Recycling System for Ink Cartridges* (CARS-I), a process in which collected ink cartridges are sorted by model, disassembled, as well as the initiative of crushing, washing and the remanufacturing of multifunction office devices.

The work environment inside the plant has been developed under the concept “clean and silent,” taking employees’ ease-of-work into consideration. What’s more, with such features as an air conditioning system that makes use of a double-skin construction, which blocks heat in the summer and retains heat in the winter, the plant building has been designed to save energy and take into account the building’s impact on the environment and has obtained an A rank in the Comprehensive Assessment System for Built Environment Efficiency§ (CASBEE).

Additionally, as the focal point of the Canon Group’s environmental activities where the Group’s environmental technologies are concentrated, the Canon Eco Technology Park has established a plant field trip course so the facility can be used as a place where such groups as elementary and middle school students can learn about the environment.

Through technological innovation and improved management efficiency, Canon aims to realise its “Action for Green” environmental vision: a society that promotes both enriched lifestyles and the global environment.

Canon Eco Technology Park is located at 1234 Umatate, Bando City, Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan and its operations are managed by Canon Ecology Industry Inc. The building area is approximately 74,200 m2.
