Non-Ferrous Products and Metal Materials Trading
As one of the key operating companies under the Metals & Minerals Company, ITOCHU Metals Corporation promotes businesses including non-ferrous products and iron scrap. The recycling-related business is a growing focus given its direct connection with the efficient use of resources to help solve increasingly pressing social issues.
ITOCHU’s involvement in the metal recycling field boasts a history of over 50 years. During that time, we have created a nationwide network of recycling companies (ITOCHU Tetsugen-kai), which has become the core of the ITOCHU Group’s recycling network.
In the field of recycling business promotion, we are developing a wide range of services, such as waste management, in order to realize the principles of the Basic Law for Establishing the Recycling-based Society. This law promotes efforts aimed at reducing the load on the environment through the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) and creating a recycling-oriented society.
