Oyster Pipe Waste and Artificial Turf Waste
Collection and Recycling Service
Marine debris, which is generated in large quantities every day, is a major problem. On the other hand, if stable collection and upcycling are possible, the waste can be reconsidered as a new resource. This service focuses on (1) oyster pipes, which drift and accumulate in large quantities in the Seto Inland Sea, and (2) artificial turf, which is estimated to spill 25 tons per year into the ocean due to abrasion. By developing and building a supply chain for the collection, recycling, and commercialization of waste that is feared to be discharged within the area where the waste is generated, we will establish a revival process where marine debris is used as a product.
Oyster pipe waste and artificial turf waste are collected and recycled as pellets through a process of crushing and sorting. They are converted to transportation baskets, triangular cones, and other products that can be utilized in places where the waste is actually generated.
