    Xerox to recycle in Asia

    Japan’s Fuji Xerox Co plans to establish a network to recycle its copiers, printers and other products Used in nine Asian-Pacific economies, including Australia and New Zealand.

    Under the plan, the copier and printer maker would build and start up a recycling plant in Thailand in September at a cost of about Y400 million ($A4.89 million), the business newspaper Nihon Keizai Shimbun said.

    It would be the first overseas recycling base for the company, a joint venture between Japan’s Fuji Photo Film Co and Britain’s Xerox, the report said.

    The company has been reprocessing data- processing and electronics products at home.

    The move comes at a time when environmental restrictions in Europe, the United States and Asia are being tightened.

    The Thai plant would reprocess 99.8 per cent or more of the materials used in its products discarded in South Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand and Thailand, the report said.

    The construction of the plant, which would be capable of dismantling and reprocessing 30,000 copiers and 400,000 toner cartridges a year, was due to begin this month, Nihon Keizai said.
