Uruma City leads nation in fuel oil waste recycling

Date Posted: 2009-06-18

Eco Energy Institute is being described as the waste recycling darling of the world.

The Uruma City-based company is being labeled as the best waste recycling company in Japan, and ranks among the tops in the entire world, transforming kitchen oils into fuel oils through state-of-the-art recycling techniques. Eco Energy Institute’s president says “to prove our own suggestions and transform them into business, the development of the technical world opens our future,” explaining how the company has amassed millions of liters of waste kitchen oils into four large tanks at its Ishikawa Higashionnna area, then converting that waste into resalable fuel. Junichi Nakamura says the company produces 100 tons of fuel each day.

The system is simple, yet complex, says Nakamura. Since last December the Eco Energy Institute has been collecting waste kitchen oil from Tomigusuku City, Uruma City and Yonabaru Town with help from 18 residents’ associations. From restaurants and homes to public facilities, the waste products are pumped into the four giant holding tanks located near Highway 329 in Uruma City, then mixed with a natural mineral stone catalyst.

Nakamura says his company’s process “doesn’t use chemicals at all.” He says “we’ve made a contract with a small island republic in the Marshall Islands, which has a lot of palm trees. From this palm tree, making the fuel oil plant has been possible.” The company president says Eco Energy Institute is looking at expansion, starting with visits to Beijing to explain how his company’s process works, and also to visits to Taiwan and India.
