    Realization of a Mutually Beneficial Cycle between the Environment and Industry

  • Background to the Development of Eco-Town Plan

    Transformation of industrial structure and revitalization of the local economy

    Revitalization of the Coastal Industrial Area; From arterial industry to venous industry

    Governments move toward institutionalizing the establishment of the recycling-based society

    Model projects by Japan Environment Corporation

  • Background Accumulation of environmental and energy

    technologies triggered by complete recovery from industrial pollution and the oil crisis in the 1970s

    Landfill crisis Waste emergency declaration in 1990 Highly environment-conscious citizens Application for the Urban Rejuvenation Project and for

    designation as an Urgent Urban Rejuvenation Area and special zone Special international environment zone by the national government

    Crisis awareness among companies in the coastal area and cooperation with City of Kawasaki
